Clayton Holdings, a provider of loan due diligence, surveillance, REO management, and consulting services to the mortgage industry, announced the addition of Andrew Pollock as senior managing director of Clayton Consulting Services.

Pollock brings more than 25 years of experience to his position with Clayton, a subsidiary of Radian Group (RDN).

In his new position, Pollock will lead Clayton Consulting Services, a provider of operational risk management, regulatory compliance, and quality control and business process improvement solutions for banks, mortgage originators and mortgage servicers.

Pollock will also be responsible for setting the overall direction for the group, expanding its offerings and the quality of its client engagements.

Earlier in his career, Pollock held several positions at First Franklin, including president and chief executive officer.

He joins Clayton from WDB Funding, an alternative commercial lending company, where he served as president and chief executive officer.

Pollock was also founder and managing partner of Global Logic Advisors, a financial services consulting firm that focused on corporate planning, operations, risk management, regulatory, compliance, finance, accounting, process improvement and project management.

“We’re continuing to expand the scope of our consulting services to anticipate the changing needs of our clients and new market participants,” said Jeff Tennyson, Clayton’s chief operating officer.

“Having known Andy for more than 15 years, I’m confident that his deep operational experience and entrepreneurial bent make him the ideal candidate to lead the transformation of Clayton Consulting Services and deliver effective strategy and operating solutions to our clients,” Tennyson added.

“Clayton Consulting Services is already one of the industry’s premier mortgage consulting companies,” Pollock said. “I’m looking forward to working with this team to deliver next-gen solutions that our long-term clients, and new Fintech entrants, will need to profitably grow their businesses.”
