We are thrilled to announce that former Director of Mortgage Regulation for the Texas Department of Savings and Mortgage Lending (TDSML) Tony Florence is officially part of the BMG team!  As we announced in April, Tony will serve as our Director of Agency Relations & Regulatory Affairs effective August 1.

As Co-Managing Partner Greg Graham stated last spring, “Tony will advise clients on matters of regulatory supervision, and will serve as a knowledgeable resource for compliance and licensing issues for our clients.  He will also represent our firm on panels and other forums at future conferences and gatherings.”

Co-Managing Partner Shawn Black added, “Tony’s reputation, personality and commitment to customer service make him a perfect fit for our firm.  His vast experience and expertise in compliance and licensing will be an invaluable resource to help our clients navigate through these areas.”

Florence retired from the Texas Department of Savings & Mortgage Lending in March after a 17-year tenure.  He has 37 years of experience in the financial arena, including loan origination, loan workout and loan servicing functions with a variety of companies.

Welcome to the BMG Team, Tony!
