Paladin Advisory Services has announced that mortgage loan quality subject matter expert John Gray, CFE, CAMS, has joined its team to drive the company’s forensic loan file review programs and enhance its offerings in strategic guidance and training for mortgage lenders.
Gray’s prior experience includes working as Senior Vice President of Repurchases at CITI, Senior Vice President of Investigations at JP Morgan/Chase, and Senior Vice President of Fraud Prevention at Bear Sterns/EMC Mortgage.
"John is a legend in the industry, having been at the forefront of the fight to maintain data integrity for lenders since his days as a charter member of Freddie Mac’s first investigative unit to his days resolving repurchase issues to the tune of $1.5 billion in recoveries for CITI Mortgage,” said Ann Fulmer, Principal at Paladin Advisory Services. “John’s experience assessing and mitigating risks posed by correspondents and vendors, coupled with his deep understanding of all aspects of the mortgage origination process, makes him an invaluable resource for mortgage lenders and for Paladin.
