The Federal Housing Finance Agency (FHFA) says Clinton Jones has succeeded Alfred Pollard as the agency’s new general counsel.
Pollard is retiring from the FHFA at the end of March.
“Alfred has served admirably as general counsel to every FHFA director,” says agency director Mark Calabria. “I am grateful for his wise counsel, hard work and dedication to the agency.
“Clinton’s long-standing career in public service, in-depth legal expertise in housing policy and executive leadership skills will help bolster FHFA’s work as a world-class prudential regulator,” he adds.
Jones has served as a senior advisor at the FHFA since 2019. Prior to joining the agency, he served for 24 years in various senior legal roles at the U.S. House of Representatives Committee on Financial Services, including general counsel, parliamentarian and, most recently, senior counsel for the Housing and Insurance Subcommittee.
Jones was also a vice president at Fannie Mae and an attorney advisor for the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development.
