Ricardo A. Anzaldua, executive vice president of Freddie Mac, has been appointed general counsel and corporate secretary, succeeding William H. McDavid, who retired this month.
Anzaldua joined Freddie Mac in May as executive vice president and senior legal advisor.
In a statement, Donald H. Layton, CEO of Freddie Mac, says Anzaldua “has become a valuable member of Freddie Mac’s executive team, providing sound advice and thoughtful counsel on many important issues affecting our company.”
“His judgment and forward thinking will serve us well as we continue our company’s transformation,” Layton adds. “I’d like to again thank Bill McDavid for his many contributions to making Freddie Mac a fundamentally better company, and we wish him all the best in his retirement.”
Prior to joining Freddie Mac, Anzaldua was executive vice president and general counsel of MetLife Inc., from 2012 until 2017.
From 2007 to 2012, he held senior positions in the legal department of the Hartford Financial Services Group.
He began his legal career at the law firm of Cleary, Gottlieb, Steen & Hamilton LLP, where he became a partner in 1999.
