The projects were focused on objectives for supporting regulatory compliance for key programs such as Basel, CCAR, AML, etc.
  • Basel Data Remediation: Josh led a large 40+mm effort focused on the remediation of a Consumer Mortgage portfolio data required for Basel models. The effort was successful in performing data remediation across multiple portfolio and data streams and re-developed PD, LGD and EAD models. This work was key to achieving a $2bn+ reduction in capital for the organization and closing multiple MRA’s. In addition to the remediation of data for Basel, the program defined and delivered a data governance function into the organization to drive a more effective approach to managing and governing the data to effectively complying with regulatory scrutiny and mitigate the risk for the organization.
  • BCBS 239 Compliance: Josh was the head of establishing the Risk Data Quality Office at a key G-SIB financial institution. The team successfully established the charter/goals, communicated awareness, established a roadmap for execution and delivered on critical data quality objectives to kick start BCBS 239 compliance objectives. The resulting objectives helped the organization to better understand the scope and process towards full compliance of BCBS 239. Additionally the team delivered a data quality framework and infrastructure to support future projects and senior management more effectively across multiple regulatory challenges.
  • Data Quality Reporting and Analytics: Josh led the analysis, identification and implementation of a data quality infrastructure and framework for a top-10 regional banks Enterprise Data Governance organization. The infrastructure was initially focused on supporting CCAR (M,Q,Y) and Basel compliance. The infrastructure and business process allowed for a significant improvement in rule implementation with 6000+ data quality rules implemented and validated over a 30 day period for CCAR (M, Q) and an additional 800 data quality rules for the CCAR 14A model validation. Additionally the infrastructure was used to help accelerate the Basel Data Quality project by reduction of data quality rule validation by over 90%, reduction in re-work by 60%, and allowed for failures to be identified 3-6 months ahead of schedule. The infrastructure consisted of establishing governance, developing standardized framework, implementing a data quality tool, and developing standardized dashboards and templates for reusability across the enterprise.
