Former Capital One Bank Executive Mihir Patel to Lead NSM’s Enterprise-wide Risk Management

Nationstar Mortgage Holdings Inc. (NYSE: NSM) (“Nationstar”) announced today that Mihir Patel has joined Nationstar as the company’s new EVP and Chief Risk Officer. Patel, who held risk-related leadership roles at Capital One Bank, will lead the enterprise-wide risk management functions at Nationstar. He will also be a member of the executive management team.

“Mihir is a great addition to our team, bringing direct experience with highly diversified and complex financial institutions, and critical knowledge of the regulatory environment,” said Jay Bray, Chairman and CEO of Nationstar. “As Nationstar continues to deepen customer relationships, Mihir will be an important partner in ensuring that risk management continues to be a key priority for our business.”

Mihir has extensive banking, legal, regulatory and operational enterprise-wide risk management experience.
