Zach Dawson name

Zach Dawson leads Fannie Mae’s collateral policy and strategy team, which is responsible for single-family collateral strategy as a whole. This includes both Selling Guide policy and the use of collateral technology tools such as Collateral Underwriter. Dawson also oversees the appraiser quality monitoring program, collateral reporting and analytics, engagement with the appraisal community, and other strategic valuation initiatives. 

Dawson worked closely with the Fannie Mae Innovation Lab in the creation of CU and was instrumental in developing and executing a successful go-to-market strategy. He also played a lead role in the launch of Day 1 Certainty. 

Prior to joining Fannie Mae in 2012, Dawson managed appraisal fulfillment and collateral underwriting at GMAC Mortgage. He started his career as a licensed appraiser and real estate salesperson in Minnesota.  Those experiences have been critical in helping shape effective policies and innovative collateral risk management tools for the industry.
