Brian has led Bridgeforce through a period of unparalleled growth and diversification
within the lending and payments market space. He now oversees a broad
range of client-dedicated resources that provide services across the entire
credit life cycle for all areas of consumer and small business lending.
His expertise and insight in the areas of strategy, operations, regulatory
compliance, customer experience, technology and organizational issues
have added substantial value to a wide variety of Bridgeforce’s clients.
Brian has been on the leading edge of rethinking risk management practices
in light of the more stringent regulatory environment resulting from the
financial crisis. He has challenged many traditional practices by helping
clients look at risk management as an ecosystem across all business functions
and operations rather than as discrete risk elements.
Brian’s ability to turn thought leadership into action has created
many opportunities for Bridgeforce clients. These include new ways of
enhancing the customer experience through digitization and automation,
smarter methods for integrating regulatory compliance and control solutions
across the enterprise, integrating greatly improved processes for credit
reporting and 3rd party vendor management, to name just a few. Brian holds
a Bachelor of Science degree in Business Administration/Finance from the
University of Delaware.
With over 20 years in the lending and payments industry, Brian is a leading
industry speaker who has published articles in a number of industry journals
related to risk management.
