David H. Stevens, president and chief executive officer of the Mortgage Bankers Association (MBA), has announced the appointment of Lisa J. Haynes as chief financial officer. Haynes joins MBA from Fannie Mae, where she was most recently vice president for operational accounting. Haynes is a seasoned executive with more than 25 years of finance, accounting, planning and leadership experience, with a focused expertise on budgeting, expense management, forecasting and cash flow projections.

As MBA’s chief financial officer, Haynes will provide executive level leadership and management of the Association’s accounting and financial functions, including setting the policies, procedures, strategies and practices for these functions. She will advise Stevens and MBA’s senior leadership team with respect to financial reporting, financial stability and liquidity and financial growth.

A certified public accountant, Haynes graduated from Bentley College in Waltham, Mass. with a BS in accounting. She also earned her master of business administration from Boston University Graduate School of Management.
