A couple of days after Sandra Thompson took the helm of the Federal Housing Finance Agency, the new FHFA director has made several changes to her leadership team.
Thompson, who had served as deputy director of the agency’s division of housing mission and goals, has promoted long-time FHFA staff Naa Awaa Tagoe, Daniel Coates, and Danielle Walton.
Tagoe, previously the principal associate director in FHFA’s office of capital policy, will take on the new role of acting deputy director for the Division of Housing Mission and Goals (DHMG). Coates, a former senior associate director, will become a senior advisor in Thompson’s Office of the Director. Walton, director of stakeholder relations in FHFA’s Office of Congressional Affairs and Communications, has been elevated to acting chief of staff.
