staff of approximately 200, with the support of a nationwide network of more than 5,000 real estate brokers.

Green River will now become a wholly owned subsidiary of Clayton Holdings. The company will continue to operate as a standalone business, under its current brand, in its current location, and will be led by its current management team.

Christopher West, Green River’s founder and chief executive officer, and Paul Bossidy, Clayton’s chief executive officer, will become co-CEOs of Green River, and Joseph D’Urso will remain the company’s president.

Commenting on the transaction, Bossidy said, “Green River is an excellent strategic fit for Clayton and our clients. It will expand our loss mitigation offerings at a time when short sales and REO dispositions are both expected to remain strong.”

Bossidy adds that Green River’s BPO offerings will complement Clayton’s diligence and whole loan acquisition services.

West noted, “During the past year, our REO and short sale assignments have grown by more than 87 percent. By joining with an industry leader such as Clayton, we expect to continue this growth and create a more scalable company while increasing the strength of the Green River brand.”
