Treliant Risk Advisors has announced that John A. Courson, former president and chief executive officer of the Mortgage Bankers Association (MBA), has joined the firm as a senior advisor. Courson brings to this position 50 years of experience in the mortgage banking industry, including service as chairman of three state associations. In his most recent position, as president and CEO of the Mortgage Bankers Association (MBA), he has been in the eye of the storm of the mortgage crisis. He has led the industry in policy debates, in legislative and regulatory challenges, and in creating programs and operating systems to adapt to the challenges that the new legislation and regulations present. “John Courson knows and understands the challenges facing mortgage bankers as well as anyone,” said Andrew L. Sandler, CEO of Treliant Risk Advisors. “With John’s knowledge and background he will be an invaluable addition to our group as we continue to strive to provide our clients with the guidance and expertise they need in this challenging regulatory environment.” Prior to his position with MBA, Courson, served as chairman of the California Housing Finance Agency and was president and chief executive officer of a national multi-channel mortgage lender. “To join a firm of Treliant’s caliber is truly an honor,” said Courson. “They have built an incredible team of regulatory and industry experts. I have seen what they are able to offer their clients and I look forward to contributing to their efforts.”
