Thomas Freeman Joins Treliant to Manage Credit Risk Services


Thomas Freeman has joined Treliant as a Senior Advisor, bringing over 30 years of experience in banking operations, bank-FinTech partnerships, and consulting. An industry expert in risk management, he will oversee the firm's Credit Risk services for banking, FinTech, and mortgage clients.

Tom's most recent Executive roles, at SunTrust (now Truist), included Corporate Executive Vice President, Consumer & Private Wealth Management, responsible for consumer lending, branch banking, private wealth management, investment, consumer product, and credit card businesses; and Chief Risk Officer, overseeing credit, operational, compliance, and market risks for 12 years.

"The uncharted economic, political, and societal pressures of the 2020s are putting a strain on financial services companies' ability to manage credit risk, while meeting community needs," says Treliant Senior Managing Director Grace Brasington. "Tom will bring to bear a seasoned, analytical perspective to credit risk and reward, to help our clients adapt and thrive."

"The years I've spent in credit risk management have helped me appreciate the value of effective adherence to a strategic credit risk discipline—especially in challenging environments," says Tom. "I look forward to working with Treliant's cross-sector team of industry and regulatory professionals to help clients gain more confidence in decision-making under pressure."
