The Commercial Mortgage Securities Association (CMSA) has hired Brendan Reilly in the newly created position of senior vice president in government relations. The new hire, who is based in the Association's Washington, DC office, will focus on promoting CMSA as an advocate of the commercial real estate capital market finance industry with the administration, regulatory agencies, and Congress. Aside from focusing on CMSA's legislative efforts toward a permanent program for Terrorism Risk Insurance, Reilly's priority will also be to collaborate with capital markets oriented trade associations and member company lobbyists on issues that are of importance to CMSA's membership. Prior to CMSA, Reilly was the assistant vice president of Federal Government Affairs for the Independent Insurance Agents & Brokers of America (IIABA). At IIABA, Reilly led association efforts on the Terrorism Risk Insurance Extension Act of 2005, natural disaster legislation, and tax issues.
