WASHINGTON, D.C. (May 12, 2020) - MBA President and CEO Robert D. Broeksmit, CMB, released the following statement regarding the Senate confirmation of Brian Montgomery to be the next Deputy Secretary at the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD).

"MBA applauds the Senate for confirming Brian Montgomery to be our nation's next HUD Deputy Secretary. Deputy Secretary Montgomery's extensive experience in housing and at HUD will undoubtedly serve him well as he assists Secretary Carson in the development of solutions that will help address the nation's top housing issues during the current COVID-19 crisis and beyond. As FHA Commissioner, Brian made significant strides to help improve housing opportunities for low- and moderate-income homebuyers and renters alike, and we look forward to seeing him continue similar efforts as Deputy Secretary.

"With this confirmation complete, we hope the Senate will now quickly confirm the nomination of Dana Wade to replace him as FHA Commissioner. MBA looks forward to continuing our partnership with Secretary Carson, Deputy Secretary Montgomery, and the team at HUD as we work to create sensible solutions for the housing market and the overall economy."
