NALHFA Commends Senate Confirmation of Brian Montgomery as FHA Commissioner

Posted By Administration, Wednesday, May 23, 2018

The Senate voted today to confirm Brian Montgomery as the Federal Housing Administration (FHA) Commissioner. Montgomery was confirmed by a vote of 74-23. The confirmation comes after a long wait since the Senate Banking, Housing, and Urban Affairs Committee approved Brian Montgomery’s nomination to lead the Federal Housing Administration last fall. Montgomery will replace acting commissioner Dana Wade.


"NALHFA commends the confirmation of Brian Montgomery as FHA commissioner. During his tenure as commissioner under President George W. Bush and President Obama, FHA led legislative efforts to preserve the nation's affordable rental housing stock and to provide much needed affordable housing financing to develop more than 300,000 rental units throughout the country,” said Jonathan Paine, NALHFA Executive Director. “Montgomery brings tremendous knowledge and experience to the position and will be a true asset to the Department of Housing and Urban Development.” 


This would be Montgomery's second time holding the position as FHA commissioner. He was previously commissioner under Former President George W. Bush and served six months into the Obama Administration. Montgomery most recently served as the vice chairman of The Collingwood Group, a business consulting, risk management, and compliance focused advisory firm located in Washington, DC.
