The Mortgage Bankers Association (MBA) has announced that Kelley J. Williams has joined the association as associate vice president of legislative affairs. In this position, Williams will serve as MBA’s lead Democratic lobbyist for the House of Representatives. Williams comes to MBA from The Hartford, where she was director of government affairs.
“We are pleased Kelley is rejoining MBA and her addition will only strengthen our already deeply experienced team,” said Bill Killmer, MBA's senior VP of legislative and political affairs. “Her work will be invaluable to MBA as we move forward into a new legislative year. I am confident that she will continue the excellent performance she has consistently demonstrated in her previous government relation experience.”
Before her position at The Hartford, Williams was director of political affairs for the MBA. As director, Williams coordinated efforts to raise a then record amount of $1.26 million in the 2011-2012 fundraising cycle for MORPAC (the Mortgage Bankers Political Action Committee).
Prior to joining MBA, she was the manager of government affairs at the American Land Title Association (ALTA), where she split her duties between direct lobbying on association issues and managing the operations of ALTA's political action committee. Williams was also a government affairs associate at KPMG LLP.
