Feb. 10, 2022 — Wolters Kluwer Compliance Solutions has added long-time Federal Reserve veteran, and fair lending and CRA expert Jason Keller to its U.S. Advisory Services team.  With more than two decades’ experience as a federal regulator, he plays an integral role in helping financial institution clients navigate increased regulatory scrutiny, technology changes, and an ever-evolving regulatory landscape.

As Associate Director, Specialized Consulting, Keller is responsible for managing a team of regulatory consultants who develop and deliver to financial services clients fair and responsible banking as well as Community Reinvestment Act (CRA) related consulting services as part of the services offered by Wolters Kluwer Compliance Solutions. In his new position he reports to Stevie Conlon, Vice President, Tax and Regulatory Counsel for Wolters Kluwer Compliance Solutions.      

Prior to his new role, Keller spent 23 years at the Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago, where, most recently, he served as Community and Economic Senior Advisor responsible for overseeing and evaluating economic capacities and sustainable growth opportunities. In this role, he conducted seminars and workshops, and provided thought leadership on aspects of the CRA, community development, and applicable fair lending laws and regulations.

Keller is a commissioned bank examiner and has served in leadership roles assessing compliance with various consumer protection regulations in community, regional, and large banks and bank holding companies in urban, suburban and rural markets.  He often speaks, trains, and moderates sessions on topics related to CRA and fair lending at industry events attended by bankers, government officials, non-profit leaders, students and others to increase knowledge on furthering fair access to credit, capital, and opportunity. This includes the CRA & Fair Lending Colloquium, an annual conference hosted by Wolters Kluwer that is a key event for compliance professionals focused on CRA, HMDA and fair lending.

Keller holds a Bachelor’s degree in sociology from Illinois State University in Normal, Illinois and a Master’s degree in public policy and administration (MPPA) from Northwestern University in Evanston, Illinois.
