2022 HW Vanguard: Jerry Weiss


For nearly two decades, Jerry Weiss, executive vice president and chief administrative officer, has set the standard for leadership excellence at Freddie Mac. Weiss’s stewardship of a broad array of areas ranging from the company’s nationally recognized economic research, external relations and compliance to regulatory examinations and supervision, human resources and its relationship with its conservator has helped Freddie Mac effectively serve millions of homeowners and renters. He has been a trusted advisor to six CEOs and numerous board members. 

In 2021, Weiss was tapped to serve as interim general counsel, charting the legal direction of the company in a time of immense internal and external transition. Weiss’s contributions to Freddie Mac have been significant and varied over the years. Overall, few individuals have had more influence, impact and oversight over Freddie Mac’s execution of its mission than Weiss.

What has been the secret to your success? 

Treat people with respect and build a team of kind, talented and hardworking people who respect others. I’ve worked to surround myself with a diverse group of individuals who share this inclusive philosophy, and it has made me a better person and Freddie Mac a better organization.
