Washington, DC based business advisory firm, The Collingwood Group, announced today that long-time housing finance policy expert Bonnie McCloskey has joined the firm as Vice President. In her new role, McCloskey will support the firm’s Risk Management and Compliance and Business Advisory practices.

“After 27 years in the federal government I am excited to bring my experience to the private sector,” McCloskey said. “I look forward to helping Collingwood’s clients navigate today’s challenging regulatory landscape,” she added.

Prior to joining Collingwood, McCloskey worked for the Federal Housing Finance Agency (FHFA) as a senior policy analyst. In this role, she was responsible for providing oversight and guidance to Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac on a variety of single family policy and technology issues. McCloskey’s work focused on establishing new standards for industry information and systems utilization and provided her with a unique insight into the GSEs, their data issues and technology.

She also spent more than two decades with the Federal Housing Administration, serving in a number of positions within the Office of Single Family Housing. Of note, McCloskey managed all of FHA’s key technology tools, including FHA Connection, the Single Family Data Warehouse, and FHA’s Neighborhood Watch system.

“Bonnie’s experience at FHA and FHFA make her the ideal addition to the Collingwood team,” said Collingwood Vice-Chairman, Brian Montgomery. “Her work spanned all aspects of the FHA business. Her expertise will be invaluable to Collingwood’s clients as they strive to be compliant with a myriad of regulations while also exploring new opportunities.”
