compliance consulting services for community financial institution
clients across the United States. With more than 25 years of

and respond to such exams, which the Risk and Compliance team has

where he led the company through a period of explosive growth,
tripling revenue and increasing profitability and the client base
of community banks and credit unions substantially. A veteran
