Housing finance policy expert Bonnie McCloskey has joined Washington, D.C.-based business advisory firm The Collingwood Group as vice president.
Previously, McCloskey worked as a senior policy analyst for the Federal Housing Finance Agency, where she was responsible for providing oversight and guidance to Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac on a variety of single-family policy and technology issues. Her work focused on establishing new standards for industry information and systems utilization and provided her with a unique insight into the government sponsored enterprises, their data issues and technology.
She also spent more than two decades with the Federal Housing Administration (FHA), serving in a number of positions within the Office of Single Family Housing. Of note, McCloskey managed all of FHA's key technology tools, including FHA Connection, the Single Family Data Warehouse and FHA's Neighborhood Watch system.
In her new role, McCloskey will support The Collingwood Group's risk management and compliance and business advisory practices.
