Mortgage Bankers Association Taps Ernie Jolly as AVP of Legislative Affairs


Ernie Jolly has joined the Mortgage Bankers Association (MBA) as associate vice president of legislative affairs.

Jolly joins the MBA from Capitol Hill, where he most recently served as Deputy Chief of Staff for Rep. Gregory W. Meeks (D-NY).

Prior to his various roles in Congressman Meeks’ office, including Deputy Chief of Staff, Legislative Director and at the beginning of his career, as a legislative assistant, Jolly was a policy analyst at the Conference of State Bank Supervisors and a professional staff member on the U.S. Senate Committee on Finance.

In his new role with the MBA, he will be responsible for advocating on behalf of association’s legislative and policy priorities on Capitol Hill, with a primary focus on Democratic members of the U.S. House of Representatives. 

“Our members will be well-served by Ernie’s strong knowledge of housing and financial services issues, as well as his extensive relationships and experience on Capitol Hill,” says Robert D. Broeksmit, CMB, president and CEO of the MBA, in a release. “He will ensure that our members’ priorities and real estate finance policy efforts are heard and understood by key committee staff and a broad range of elected leaders in the House.”

“Ernie brings to MBA an outstanding reputation and a notable list of achievements and experience during his still-young career,” adds Bill Killmer, chief lobbyist and senior vice president of legislative and political affairs for the MBA. “His policy rigor and passion for his work will help him fit right in with the rest of our top-notch advocacy team.”
