FSR Hires Meg Burns as SVP for Mortgage Policy to Bolster Housing Finance Reform Advocacy

 

WASHINGTON — As Congress and the Administration gear up to move forward on housing finance reform, the Financial Services Roundtable (FSR) announced today it has hired Meg Burns as Senior Vice President of Mortgage Policy to bolster its housing finance reform advocacy efforts. Burns’ hiring comes after FSR recently hired Ed DeMarco, former Federal Housing Finance Agency (FHFA) Director, as its new Housing Policy Council (HPC) President.

Meg Burns will serve as SVP for Mortgage Policy to bolster housing finance reform advocacy.

“Meg’s expertise in mortgage policy and operations – from originations to default servicing – and her expertise in the policy and operational challenges facing the FHA program will make her an invaluable asset to HPC.  With housing finance reform, FHA, and mortgage servicing among our most pressing policy issues today, Meg’s addition will accelerate HPC’s ability to engage with our members and with lawmakers and regulatory agencies on these matters,” said FSR’s HPC President, Ed DeMarco.

Burns comes to FSR as a Partner of The Collingwood Group. Prior to Collingwood, Burns served as the Senior Associate Director of the Office of Housing and Regulatory Policy at the FHFA where she managed various policy and regulatory initiatives involving single-family and multifamily finance and loss mitigation strategies, as well as insurance-related activities of the government-sponsored enterprises. She was actively involved in industry-wide discussions regarding the role of the federal government in addressing the mortgage crisis. Burns previously led FHFA’s Office of Congressional Affairs and Communications, where she was responsible for handling external relations for the agency.

Before joining FHFA, Meg was the Director of the Office of Single Family Program Development for the United States Department of Housing and Urban Development’s Federal Housing Administration (FHA). She oversaw all origination policies related to FHA’s single-family programs. Meg managed three divisions, handling valuation, credit policy, and counseling services.

Meg holds a bachelor’s degree in philosophy from Connecticut College and a master’s degree in philosophy and public policy from The George Washington University.

FSR’s HPC is actively engaging policymakers on needed reforms to the housing finance system and mortgage regulations that could improve access to loans for consumers while further protecting taxpayers.
