The Mortgage Bankers Association (MBA) promoted Josh Denney to vice president of public policy.
In his position, he will be responsible for the day-to-day management of MBA's single-family residential mortgage public policy development, such as the MBA's team of residential policy issue experts. He will also assist with outreach to key stakeholders.
Denney will still staff MBA's Residential Board of Governors (RESBOG). Josh will still be reporting to MBA's Senior Vice President of Public Policy and Industry Relations Steve O'Connor.
Before joining MBA's government affairs group in early 2004 as the association's primary liaison with Senate Republicans,
Denney was staff director of the U.S. Senate Banking Committee's subcommittee on international trade and finance and legislative assistant to U.S. Senator Chuck Hagel (R-NE). He advised the Senator on financial, economic and commerce issues, including banking, housing, taxes and the federal budget.
Denney came to the Senate from Powell Tate/Weber Shandwick in Washington, where he managed public affairs campaigns for different government, corporate and nonprofit clients.
"Josh has been a critical member of MBA's public policy and government affairs team for the last six years," said John Courson, MBA's president and CEO. "His industry knowledge and policy development experience will serve MBA well as he works with our members and leads our team in building the public policy initiatives that will reshape the way the mortgage banking industry does business."
