MINNEAPOLIS, March 29, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- The ResCap Liquidating Trust (the "Trust") today announced the appointment of David Pauker to its Board of Directors. Mr. Pauker is currently a member of the Board of Directors of reorganized Lehman Brothers. Mr. Pauker is a turnaround manager and restructuring advisor with more than 25 years of experience in a broad array of industries. Mr. Pauker succeeds John Dubel who has served on the Board since ResCap's exit from bankruptcy.
Board Chairman Mitchell Sonkin commented: "David's experience and strong track record in bankruptcies and restructuring in the financial services industry will significantly benefit the Board as we continue to vigorously pursue litigation claims against banks and financial institutions and resolve the remaining legacy matters of the Trust. We look forward to David's advice, guidance and counsel."
