Freddie Mac Appoints New CFO


Freddie Mac has named Christian M. Lown executive vice president and chief financial officer, effective June 15, succeeding Donald F. Kish, who has served as interim CFO since December 2019. Kish will continue serving as senior vice president, corporate controller and principal accounting officer.

Lown was previously EVP and CFO at Navient Corp., where he was responsible for the accounting, corporate development, financial planning and analysis, investor relations, procurement, treasury, and vendor management functions.

“We welcome Chris Lown to Freddie Mac. His demonstrated success as a chief financial officer and strong background in the debt and equity capital markets and in mergers and acquisitions will be invaluable as we prepare our company to exit conservatorship,” says Freddie Mac CEO David Brickman.

Prior to joining Navient in 2017, Lown was managing director of the financial institutions group at Morgan Stanley.
