NEW YORK ( CNBC) -- Consumer-credit delinquencies are on the rise again, but that doesn't mean the consumer credit picture is worsening, according to FICO CEO Mark Greene. "We're sort of tentative and cautious," Greene said in an interview with CNBC. "Our view at FICO is we probably have 2011 as another year of working through these issues, particularly on the housing side -- the mortgage industry is the one we're most troubled by at the moment -- and we are probably into 2012 before we see clear signs of recovery, so this is a period of tentative recovery at this time," Greene said.
