Danny Gardner is a key driver of Freddie Mac’s success. Gardner is responsible for fulfilling the company’s community mission to provide sustainable homeownership education and financing to families who are traditionally underserved by the market.
Notably, he is on the forefront of other key aspects of Freddie Mac’s business, such as overseeing delivery and performance against Single-Family Affordable Lending’s goals, Duty to Serve regulation and Access to Credit activities in the FHFA Scorecard. In 2019, Gardner has helped the GSE launch many solutions including, HomeOne, which is a low-down payment product for first-time homebuyers, as well as HomePossible, a program that allows buyers to earn credit towards funds to close. Additionally, he helped the GSE collaborate with EarnUp to develop a fintech solution that better helps buyers prepare for homeownership.
“It’s an exciting time to be a part of the mortgage industry and to participate in its evolution. My role at Freddie Mac empowers me to bring creative ideas to the table, with the goal of reimagining the loan origination process for our clients, community partners and, ultimately, borrowers.”
