The Financial Services Roundtable hired Meg Burns as senior vice president of mortgage policy to bolster its housing finance reform advocacy efforts.

She brings long history in the housing market to position. She joins the FSR as a Partner of The Collingwood Group.

Prior to the Collingwood, Burns served as the senior associate director of the Office of Housing and Regulatory Policy at the Federal Housing Finance Agency where she managed various policy and regulatory initiatives.

And before that role, Burns was the director of the Office of Single Family Program Development for the Federal Housing Administration.

The news comes shortly after the FSR announced it hired former FHFA Acting Director Ed DeMarco as its Housing Policy Council president.

“Meg’s expertise in mortgage policy and operations – from originations to default servicing – and her expertise in the policy and operational challenges facing the FHA program will make her an invaluable asset to HPC,” said DeMarco. “With housing finance reform, FHA, and mortgage servicing among our most pressing policy issues today, Meg’s addition will accelerate HPC’s ability to engage with our members and with lawmakers and regulatory agencies on these matters.”
