AMCO, a Cleveland-based valuation management company, has announced the addition of Frank J. Fahrenkopf Jr., former chairman of the Republican Party, to its advisory board.Mr. Fahrenkopf said he believes in "market-driven solutions" to problems related to noncompliant and inaccurate valuations in the mortgage industry. "AMCO's total independence, single-focused approach to the valuation industry, and unique proprietary solutions are exactly what the mortgage lending industry needs, before government is forced to enact more onerous regulation," he said. Mr. Fahrenkopf joins a board already consisting of two former secretaries of the Department of Housing and Urban Development, Andrew M. Cuomo and Jack F. Kemp, and William C. Apgar, a former commissioner of the Federal Housing Administration who is now senior scholar at Harvard University's Joint Center for Housing Studies.
