“We couldn’t be welcoming Angel to Stavvy’s leadership team at a more perfect time,” said Kosta Ligris, co-founder and CEO of Stavvy. “With his broad regulatory expertise, he is uniquely positioned to identify the challenges the industry is facing and articulate the opportunities that exist to create a faster, more efficient, more secure experience for consumers.”

Hernandez joins Stavvy from the Housing Policy Council, where he served as the vice president of Capital Markets and focused on issues impacting mortgage securitization, capital markets, and the adoption of technology and innovation in housing finance. Prior to that, he was the Director of MBS Programs at Ginnie Mae, where he led the agency’s policy development. He was responsible for implementing securitization platform updates, overseeing legislative and regulatory issues, managing stakeholder engagement strategy, and spearheading key strategic initiatives, including the agency’s COVID-19 policy response and its launch of the eNote and Digital Collateral Program.

Earlier in his career, Hernandez held positions in community relations, brand marketing, non-profit development, and sales management.

“I am eager to do my part to help existing and prospective homeowners as well as the mortgage firms who serve them by delivering products that increase visibility, quality, and efficiency in housing finance,” said Hernandez.
