"Under his leadership, we'll enhance the Performance Premium® pricing introduced in 2009 by Jason Berkey's team. By providing better rates for quality loans, this risk-based platform creates certainty for lenders and savings for consumers."
Prior to joining AIG, he was CRO for a large U.S. mortgage insurer and has held senior management positions at a number of major financial institutions, including GMAC ResCap, ABN AMRO, and Lincoln Capital Management.
Parrent holds a bachelor's in economics from Princeton University and an MBA in statistics and finance from the University of Chicago.
