Executive vice president (EVP) and chief financial officer (CFO) C. Robert Quint will retire from Radian Group Inc. at the end of 2014, after nearly 25 years with the company. Effective Jan. 1, 2015, J. Franklin Hall will assume the role of EVP and CFO. To ensure a smooth transition, Quint will serve as EVP of finance through March 31, 2015, and then assume a consulting role through the end of 2015.
For more than two decades, Quint has been responsible for all financial functions at Radian. He joined the company as controller and vice president of administration in 1990. Quint was named CFO six years later, and EVP three years after that.
Radian CEO S.A. Ibrahim says, ‘Throughout market highs and lows, [Quint's] finance and business acumen, combined with the respect he has earned among Radian employees, customers, regulators and investors, has helped the company grow and deliver value to our stockholders. I am personally grateful to [Quint] for the past 10 years of inspiring passion, creativity and tenacity.’
As the new EVP and CFO, Hall brings extensive expertise to Radian, with more than two decades of leadership and experience in financial reporting, planning and analysis, investor relations, capital planning, corporate development, tax and treasury.
Hall began his career with Ernst & Young, and later served as a senior financial analyst for Firstar Bank. He joined First Financial Bancorp in 1999, and assumed the role of CFO in 2005.
