Former Ginnie Mae President Joe Murin and former Federal Housing Administration commissioner Brian Montgomery will lead a new mortgage banking practice launched by The Collingwood Group. The practice will serve mortgage bankers by customizing strategies in business operations, regulatory compliance, capital planning and risk management. "The Collingwood Group's new mortgage banking practice allows clients to leverage our experience in the private and government sectors," Murin said. "Our team is uniquely qualified to help mortgage banking firms navigate the uncertainty that defines the current market environment." Montgomery and Murin co-founded The Collingwood Group in 2009 with three other partners. The firm provides business investment and advisory services to clients in banking, housing and the mortgage industry. Write to Kerry Curry.
