Both the chief executive officer and the chairman of the board of Freddie Mac are stepping down within the next few months, the Federal Housing Finance Agency (FHFA) said late Wednesday.

Charles E. Haldeman Jr., Freddie's CEO, has told the government-sponsored enterprise's board that he would like to leave "some time in the coming year," FHFA said. Separately, John Koskinen, Freddie's chairman, has reached the company's mandatory retirement age and will step down at the end of his term in February 2012, the agency said.
