The Housing Policy Council (HPC) has appointed former Ginnie Mae executive Angel Hernandez as vice president of capital markets.
The trade association said on Wednesday that Hernandez will assist in overseeing all aspects of its policy development, focusing on mortgage-backed securitization, capital markets, and technology and innovation in housing finance.
Hernandez made the switch to HPC from Ginnie Mae, where he most recently worked as director of MBS programs. Before Ginnie Mae, he served as a legal associate and law clerk at various firms and federal agencies, including McCandlish & Lillard, the US Securities and Exchange Commission, and the Financial Industry Regulatory Agency.
“Angel has experience working with many of our member companies on a range of Ginnie Mae securitization and technology issues, bringing valuable insight and knowledge of HPC’s key issues,” said HPC President Ed DeMarco. “We are very excited for Angel to join the team and look forward to HPC’s next chapter as we continue to focus on facilitating a practical and purposeful evolution for our housing finance system.”
In 2018, Hernandez received several recognitions from the US Department of Housing and Urban Development, including the HUD All-Star award, HUD Employee of the Year, and the HUD Community Service award.
