President Trump announced this week that he will nominate current Assistant Secretary of Housing/Federal Housing Administration Commissioner Brian Montgomery to be the next Deputy Secretary of the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD).
Commissioner Montgomery currently performs duties of the Deputy Secretary of the Department while also serving as FHA Commissioner. If confirmed by the Senate, Montgomery would be the second most senior official at HUD, managing the day-to-day operations of the agency and advising and assisting the Secretary in leading the Department’s nearly 8,000 employees.
“NRMLA congratulates Commissioner Montgomery on his nomination to be Deputy Secretary,” said Steve Irwin, EVP of NRMLA. “We are certain Brian’s exemplary leadership will further the Department’s mission.”
Montgomery served as FHA Commissioner from 2005 to 2009, during President George W. Bush’s second term and the first six months of the Obama Administration. He previously served as vice chairman of The Collingwood Group, a Washington, D.C.-based advisory firm focused on business consulting, risk management and compliance within the financial services industry.
Commissioner Montgomery will be the keynote speaker at this year’s Annual Meeting & Expo in Nashville, November 18-20. Don’t miss this opportunity to get the latest news on the HECM program and FHA’s priorities for 2020.
