“Matic’s strategic partners count on us to hold ourselves to the highest standards in regulatory compliance and corporate governance, and we take that commitment very seriously,” said Matic Chief Executive Officer Aaron Schiff. “We welcome Shaz to the team and look forward to working with her to deliver an even higher level of compliance assurance to our customers.”
Before that, Kojouri oversaw regulatory compliance testing and Consumer Finance Protection Bureau (CFPB) readiness for national mortgage lender New Penn Financial. She first joined New Penn in 2009, in the immediate aftermath of the subprime mortgage crisis, and guided the lender through a time of intense regulatory change.
