May 24, 2017 Alert - SFIG Welcomes Covell Adams and Scott Brody to Its Senior Leadership Team

We are excited to announce today that we have hired Covell Adams as Chief Administrative Officer (CAO) and Scott Brody as Director of Education and Conferences. Ms. Adams will report to SFIG's Executive Director, Richard Johns, and Mr. Brody will report to Ms. Adams.

"We are thrilled to add Covell and Scott to the SFIG team. Both of these talented senior leaders bring decades of industry experience and deep securitization market expertise to SFIG, as well as a successful history of collaborating with SFIG. Already, they both know and understand our operations, our goals, our staff, our members and, most importantly, our ethics," said Mr. Johns.

In her role as CAO, Ms. Adams will be responsible for coordinating long-term planning and strategy development across SFIG's core education and operational initiatives, the SFIG Foundation and the Structured Finance Coalition. She will serve as the liaison between SFIG’s executive membership and leadership team and operational teams within each area of the organization. Prior to joining SFIG, Ms. Adams was Head of Business Strategy and Development for the Asset Backed Finance and Securitization unit of Wells Fargo Securities, where she was responsible for creating and executing growth strategies across consumer, mortgage, and corporate debt. She previously served as Director and Chief Operating Officer of Global Mortgages and Securitized Products at Bank of America Merrill Lynch.

As SFIG's Director of Education and Conferences, Mr. Brody will build on SFIG's successful longtime partnership with IMN in expanding SFIG's independent in-house event management capabilities. Mr. Brody joins the organization from IMN-Euromoney, where as Managing Director he was responsible for organizing numerous senior-level executive conferences across several industry verticals and was deeply involved in the annual planning of SFIG Vegas, the single largest gathering of structured finance professionals and SFIG's hallmark annual conference. Mr. Brody co-founded IMN in 1994 and has built his reputable career organizing renowned high-impact conferences spanning all sectors of the fixed income capital markets, structured products and asset management communities.

These additions to SFIG's senior leadership team represent the latest phase of SFIG's growth and evolution in becoming the leading voice for the global structured finance market. SFIG has approximately 350 institutional members, with near equal representation from issuers and investors in structured products, and in February 2017 hosted approximately 7,000 structured finance professionals at its hallmark annual conference – SFIG Vegas – the single largest gathering in the industry. In April 2017, SFIG announced the expansion of its in-house event management capabilities.
