CWDL is thrilled to announce that Mark Wilson, Managing Partner, and Dustin Pfluger, Partner and Mortgage Banking Practice Leader, have made a significant strategic investment in Firstline Compliance, an operational risk and compliance advisory services firm.

Wilson and Pfluger join Troy Garris, Co-Managing Partner of Garris Horn, LLP, and Josh Weinberg, President of Firstline Compliance, as investors in the company.

As a result of this investment, as well as the previous investment by Garris, clients will benefit from direct access to the specialized services offered by each firm. CWDL and Firstline Compliance continue to be separate entities and maintain distinct branding and leadership structures.

“As an accounting firm dedicated to providing transformative guidance to the mortgage industry, we are so excited about this investment in Firstline Compliance,” says Mark Wilson, Managing Partner of CWDL. “Josh has assembled a best-in-class team of risk, compliance, technology, and operations professionals. In a dynamic and rapidly changing market, the ability to provide our clients with immediate access to essential compliance services sets us apart. Add in the result-oriented legal support offered by Troy, another recognized leader in the industry, and our clients have access to the complete suite of services that every lender needs.”
