Brian Montgomery was confirmed as FHA commissioner in May by a vote in the Senate of 74 to 23. But this wasn’t his first trip to the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development's c-suite. This is his second run leading the FHA, and he’s been serving the public sector in several roles for quite some time.

Tune in on Monday, Oct. 15 for our fourth episode featuring Irving Dennis, HUD's chief financial officer.
