The Federal Housing Finance Agency this week hired Manoj K. Singh as principal examiner for risk, in charge of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac.
Singh joins the agency from The Collingwood Group, a Washington-based consulting firm whose ranks include a handful of former GNMA executives.
A "special advisor," he joined Collingwood in July of this year. But Singh also is steeped in secondary market risk with a resume that includes stints at Freddie Mac and Bear Stearns.
He worked at Freddie from 2006 to July of this year, last serving as senior vice president of pricing and securitization on the single-family side of the business. Before being promoted at the GSE, he was SVP in charge of market risk management. Freddie has been a ward of the government since September 2008.
Prior to joining Freddie, he also held executive level positions with Bear, Lehman Brothers, and Wasserstein Perella Capital Management.
