The Mortgage Bankers Association (MBA) announced the appointment of Brad Cheney as director of Legislative Affairs.
MBA also promoted Pace Bradshaw to Director of Government Affairs.
Cheney joins MBA from the office of Congressman Brad Sherman (D-CA), where he served as chief of staff. In that role, he was responsible for managing all operations of the Washington, DC office, including developing and implementing critical strategy during the recent financial crisis and stabilization efforts. In his new role, Cheney will join MBA's lobbying team on Capitol Hill working with members of the House of Representatives and Senate. He will begin on November 10.
Bradshaw, who started at MBA in August 2006, will continue to advocate on behalf of the association on Capitol Hill, working with members of the House of Representatives and Senate on issues important to MBA's members.
Prior to joining MBA, Bradshaw worked for Senator John Sununu (R-NH) from 2003-2006 where he specialized in banking and commerce committee issues and in the Office of Public Liaison at the Department of the Treasury.
Both will report to Thomas Koonce, MBA's newly-hired Vice President of Legislative Affairs.
