NY bank superintendent to join PwC
Richard Neiman, the former New York Bank superintendent, will join financial advisory firm PricewaterhouseCoopers. Neiman's new role will be vice chairman of the company's global financial services regulatory practice. He will work with banks, institutions and regulators on issues arising from new financial rules specifically stemming from the Dodd-Frank Act. Neiman will also lead the PwC foreign bank regulatory practice, focusing on advising overseas banks on how they can comply with U.S. rules. Neiman was formerly a member of the Congressional Oversight Panel, which facilitated implementation of the Troubled Asset Relief Program. He long advocated for more structural guidance on issues such as mortgage servicing standards similar to those implemented in New York. "In this time of regulatory-driven change, we think our clients will appreciate the unique perspective that Richard will bring them as a former regulator and industry executive," said Dan Ryan, partner and chairman of PwC's financial services regulatory practice. Neiman worked as a director of the PwC regulatory advisory practice in the 1990s and now rejoins the firm. Write to Jon Prior. Follow him on Twitter @JonAPrior.
