In addition to maintaining the traditional chief compliance officer responsibilities, Fannie Mae appointed Nancy Jardini as its officer for women and minority inclusion to oversee the company’s diversity initiatives.
Under Jardini’s leadership Fannie Mae is taking its commitment to diversity to the next level. While remaining fully committed to all employee engagement and outreach efforts, Fannie Mae is focusing even more attention on supporting a diverse set of suppliers and partners in financial transactions. Jardini has expanded the footprint of the diversity programs and is leading the implementation of new areas of focus.
Prior to joining Fannie Mae, Nancy was the first-ever female chief of the criminalm investigation arm of the Internal Revenue Service. She joined Fannie Mae in 2007 when the company was facing the subprime crisis. Because of the resulting explosion in the legal and regulatory environment after the financial crisis, Jardini quickly identified the need for a strong compliance framework. That framework has stood the test of time through enhanced oversight and serves as a reliable cornerstone of a robust overall program based on risk assessment, monitoring, testing and employee education.
