Senior Advisor for the Promontory Financial Group in Washington, D.C. His specialty is Basel II, internal Economic Capital, and more broadly, the measurement, management, regulation, and supervision of risk at major financial institutions.

Mr. Mingo spent the 1980's as a consultant, first as Managing Director, BEI Golembe, Inc. and then as a founding principal of the Potomac Financial Group. During this time, Mr. Mingo’s principal area of activity was in the merger and acquisition arena, with special emphasis on capital planning and the financial restructuring of troubled banks and thrifts.

During the 1970's, Mr. Mingo was actively involved in the setting of bank regulatory policy, first as Senior Research Division Officer at the Federal Reserve Board and next as Deputy Assistant Secretary of the Treasury for Capital Markets Policy. He was instrumental in the passage of the 1980 legislation deregulating deposit interest ceilings.
