Lenders Compliance Group Inc. (LCG) has announced the appointment of Ben Niles to the position of director of compliance training, supporting the firm's clients with their compliance training needs. Niles's experience in mortgage banking will enhance the firm's existing team of subject matter experts in mortgage banking, providing a "best practices" approach to residential mortgage compliance.

"Ben Niles is a uniquely experienced mortgage professional in the mortgage industry, having distinguished himself as a skilled presenter and educator in many key aspects of mortgage banking, as well as strong relationship management experience,” said Jonathan Foxx, president and managing director of Lenders Compliance Group. “His compliance administration and risk management experience, given the ever increasing federal and state regulations, will be a valuable resource for our clients.”

Niles has more than 43 years of diverse mortgage banking experience in the primary and secondary markets, bringing his passion and commitment to his work. He holds a Master CMB and an MBA from Drexel University. His skills were honed throughout his career with his work in underwriting, underwriting management, primary and secondary market sales, and risk management. He has given numerous presentations at mortgage banking industry seminars, workshops, and conferences on topics from underwriting, securitization, automated underwriting systems, and affordable housing, to ethics, fraud prevention, predatory lending, low doc/no doc risks, and regulatory compliance. His MBA responsibilities have given him a practical understanding of the key issues and challenges facing mortgage bankers and mortgage brokers in the today's highly regulated lending environment.

"With all the increasing requirements of investors, regulators, and third-party business partners in the mortgage industry today, I could not be more excited to join an organization like LCG,” said Niles. “Jonathan Foxx truly understands that mortgage firms must have access to experienced, but also independent expert guidance. LCG's subject matter experts offer compliance solutions, training, and support for those who seek value, but refuse to compromise on the quality of their compliance programs."
