Brian Rubin is one of the foremost experts on change in the financial services industry, known for orchestrating and implementing the redesign of Bank of America’s foreclosure process during the great recession in 2008-2009. This included rewriting over 3000 processes, holds and issues across more than 20 locations in 9 states.
