WASHINGTON–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Treliant has promoted Mark Westmoreland to Managing Director. Mark
co-leads Treliant’s Regulatory Compliance and Risk service area, and he
founded and leads the firm’s Financial Technology (FinTech) service
area. He is a highly experienced regulatory compliance executive, having
worked in the field for over 15 years.
At Treliant, Mark has counseled, and led numerous long-term compliance
engagements, for many national and regional banks. He has also helped a
number of FinTech institutions build compliance programs from the ground
up. Mark’s experience and thought leadership have helped clients address
every aspect of bank and bank partner compliance management programs
including strategic design, monitoring and testing, complaint management
programs, and consent order remediation projects.
Prior to joining Treliant, Mark was a practicing attorney and served as

loans. This includes deep subject matter expertise in the Fair Credit
Reporting Act and fair lending data usage and governance.

effectively managed through a strong, transparent compliance risk
management program,” said Treliant Senior Managing Director Kathryn S.

the financial services industry perform confidently despite changing
rules and expectations.”
