Dennis Glennon is Director of the Credit Risk Analysis Division within the Economics department of the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency (OCC).
Dr. Glennon’s current research projects include the application of maximum entropy econometric techniques to bank-failure and loan-default modeling, the development of competing-risk models of SBA loan default and prepayment behavior, and the development of alternative methods of assessing model risk. He participates in the supervision of retail lending and mortgage credit-scoring and pricing models. His fields of interest include credit scoring, credit risk modeling, and bank failure analysis. Dr. Glennon received his doctorate in economics from the University of Missouri-Columbia.
