David H. Stevens, president and chief executive officer of the Mortgage Bankers Association (MBA), has announced the appointment of Peter Grace as the MBA's new vice president of strategic planning and internal technology.  Grace will facilitate the implementation of strategic initiatives through a coordinated project management and leadership role. He will manage cross-functional alignment on strategic initiatives that include broad membership engagement and coordination.

Grace joins the MBA from the U.S. Department of Housing & Urban Development (HUD), where he most recently served as Chief of Staff for the Acting Deputy Secretary Estelle Richman on matters related to the management of HUD. He provided leadership on HUD's Transformation Initiative, a multiyear, multifaceted organizational change program. "Peter brings to MBA significant experience in strategic planning and execution," said Stevens. "As MBA implements its new strategic operating plan to provide member value and enhance its industry leadership, Peter will play a key role facilitating cooperation and engagement of internal and external stakeholders to achieve MBA's priorities and objectives." While at HUD, Grace also served as Director in the Office of Strategic Planning and Management where he was responsible for the development and execution of HUD's 2010-2015 Strategic Plan and implementation of the department's $13.6 billion in economic stimulus funding allocated under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act.  Grace also developed and managed the agency's Transformation initiative and delivery of HUD's competitive grant programs. Prior to joining HUD, he was Associate Commissioner of the Office of Strategic Planning, Technology and Research at the New York City Department of Housing Preservation and Development where he was responsible for facilitating the identification of the agency's strategic priorities and aligning and executing all program improvement, information technology and research activities with those priorities. Before moving into government, Peter worked at Accenture, a global management consulting, technology services company.
