The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) has announced the hiring of Bruce Lammers as the Administrator of Rural Development’s Rural Housing Service.
Lammers comes to the USDA after serving for three years as president of a specialized government-guaranteed lending division of Byline Bank. Before that, Lammers was Chairman and CEO of Ridgestone Bank, a national leader in government-guaranteed lending that was acquired in 2016 by Byline Bank. Lammers has also served as a board member of the National Association of Government Guaranteed Lenders (NAGGL).
“Public-private partnerships are essential to increasing access to capital and building prosperity in rural America,” said Acting Assistant to the Secretary for Rural Development Joel Baxley. “Lammers has been a long-time leader in government-guaranteed lending, and this important perspective will help USDA Rural Development be a stronger, more innovative partner with private, community-focused lending institutions across the country.”
