Amanda Phillips has joined ACES Quality Management (ACES) as executive vice president of compliance.
Phillips most recently served as of counsel with Ballard Spahr, LLP, where her responsibilities included advising clients on the federal and state regulatory requirements governing mortgage lending, software, mortgage documents, business processes and practices.
Prior to joining Ballard Spahr, she spent six years as in-house counsel and executive vice president of legal and regulatory compliance for Accenture Mortgage Cadence and an additional five years as senior vice president and director of compliance for a national mortgage lender.
In her new role with ACES, Phillips will serve a key role in expanding the breadth and depth of the company’s compliance and regulatory solutions.
“Compliance is a key pillar of the ACES value proposition, and with the onslaught of regulatory changes the industry experienced over the last year, the need for experienced compliance professionals to help keep pace with these changes only grows,” says Trevor Gauthier, CEO of ACES, in a release. “Amanda Phillips possesses more than a decade of executive-level experience in legal and regulatory compliance. Her understanding of the mortgage industry and depth of compliance experience will greatly enhance ACES’ ability to ensure lenders are always auditing to the most current compliance standards, while also assisting in bringing new products to market.”
