Oct 01, 2014

Federal Housing Finance Agency (FHFA) Director Mel Watt announced the appointment of Sharron P.A. Levine to be Director of the Office of Minority and Women Inclusion (OMWI). Levine will oversee OMWI’s mission of creating and supporting initiatives that promote the inclusion of minorities and women and advocating for diversity and inclusion across FHFA’s business and employment activities and at the entities FHFA regulates.

Levine joined FHFA in June 2012 and has served as an Associate General Counsel since September of that year.  Levine practiced law for 30 years and prior to joining FHFA served in the general counsel’s office of Fannie Mae from 1999-2011, departing as a Vice President and Deputy General Counsel for the multifamily housing division. Prior to that she held various other legal positions in the housing industry. 

“Sharron’s extensive management, operational and legal experience, as well as her understanding of how our regulated entities function will serve FHFA well,” said Watt.  “Her leadership of OMWI will be a real benefit to FHFA as we work to fulfill the statutory mission of OMWI to promote job and business opportunities for minorities and women, a mission to which I have consistently expressed my personal commitment.”
