Former AG Joins Compliance Firm

A former state attorney general has been recruited by a mortgage compliance firm based in the nation’s capitol. It’s the second recent high-profile addition for the company.

Last September, Treliant Risk Advisors hired John Courson as a senior advisor.

Courson was previously president, chief executive officer and chairman of the Mortgage Bankers Association.

Treliant says it advises clients about a host of issues including regulatory compliance, risk management and foreclosure practices.

On Thursday, the Washington, D.C.-based firm announced that Terry Goddard has also joined the company as a senior advisor.

Goddard was attorney general for the state of Arizona from 2002 until 2011.

“During his time as an attorney general, Terry played a leading role on the National Association of Attorneys General multi-state task force focused on the mortgage industry and related matters,” the statement said.

Goddard, who earned an undergraduate degree from Harvard University, also served a six-year term as the mayor of Phoenix. In addition, he was on the board of the Federal Home Loan Bank of San Francisco from 1995 to 1999.

“Terry will significantly deepen Treliant’s ability to provide clients with the tools to address the significant concerns of the enforcement and regulatory community,” Treliant CEO Andrew L. Sandler said in the news release.

Goddard, himself, added, “The financial services industry will be challenged by the coordinated efforts of state and federal enforcement actions focused on a range of issues, and it is important now, more than ever before, for financial services industry companies to ensure they operate in a fair and responsible manner when providing products and services to consumers.”
