John Vong is the president and co-founder of ComplianceEase®, a leading risk management solutions provider. Mr. Vong founded ComplianceEase in 2001 after spending the previous two decades in various mortgage industry ventures. In 1986 he founded Integrated Capital Group, Inc. a mortgage bank headquartered in San Francisco. In 1997 he sold the mortgage bank to the Money Store and subsequently sold the combined entity to First Union Bank in 1998. Working under a highly regulated banking environment caused Mr. Vong to develop an intense interest in managing regulatory compliance risk. This lead to his founding of ComplianceEase, a company dedicated to developing intelligent solutions to manage regulatory risk on a real-time basis. He designed the original ComplianceEase tool from an Excel spreadsheet, which has evolved to todays enterprise strength solutions detecting in loan-level federal HOEPA, TILA, RESPA, HMDA, and SAFE Act violations, as well as violations of state consumer credit laws and regulations. Mr. Vong is active in industry circles and has participated in speaking engagements with regional and national trade groups and industry organizations.

He has been awarded the Certified Mortgage Banker (CMB) designation, the industry highest, by the Mortgage Bankers Association.
