The Mortgage Bankers Association (MBA) today announced the promotion of Dan Fichtler to Associate Vice President of Housing Finance Policy within the association’s Residential Policy and Member Engagement team, effective immediately.
In his new role, Fichtler will help lead MBA’s housing finance policy development, including serving as the lead staff representative for MBA’s top residential policy committee, the Residential Board of Governors (RESBOG), as well as the RESBOG Nominating and RESBOG Advisory Committees. Additionally, he will coordinate and execute across the association’s key committees, work groups, and task forces, including the Secondary and Capital Markets Committee and the Residential Loan Production Committee (and related subcommittees).
“Dan’s hard-earned promotion comes at a pivotal time in our industry, and I’m confident his expanded responsibilities will play an invaluable role in shaping MBA’s policy work on housing finance reform, government housing programs, and the capital markets,” said Pete Mills, MBA Senior Vice President, Residential Policy and Member Engagement. “I can think of no one more deserving or better suited to assume this position.”
Fichtler previously served as MBA’s Director of Housing Finance Policy, responsible for developing the association’s policy work related to loan production and secondary and capital markets issues.
Prior to joining MBA, Fichtler was a policy advisor at the U.S. Department of the Treasury, where he served on the staff of the Financial Stability Oversight Council. He has also served as an advisor to the majority staff of the Senate Banking Committee, during which time he helped draft the Johnson-Crapo housing finance reform legislation.
Dan holds a bachelor's degree in economics and political science from Colgate University and a master's in public affairs from the Woodrow Wilson School at Princeton University.
