"Dan's hard-earned promotion comes at a pivotal time in our industry, and I'm confident his expanded responsibilities will play an invaluable role in shaping MBA's policy work on housing finance reform, government housing programs, and the capital markets," said Pete Mills, MBA senior vice president of residential policy and member engagement.
