Five Star Institute CEO Comments on the Selection of Brian Montgomery as FHA Commissioner

DALLAS, September 14, 2017 – Wednesday, President Donald Trump announced the nomination of Brian Montgomery to the position of Federal Housing Administration (FHA) Commissioner. Montgomery rejoins the public sector from The Collingwood Group, a financial services advisory firm which he co-founded in 2009.

Prior to forming the Collingwood Group, Montgomery’s public service included time in the executive office of the President where he served as Deputy Assistant to President Bush and a four year stint at The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) where he served as Assistant Secretary and FHA Commissioner.

“Having had the privilege of knowing Brian Montgomery for many years, I can testify to his ample qualification to lead the Federal Housing Administration,” said Five Star Institute President and CEO Ed Delgado. “With his return to public service, FHA is gaining a strong and steady hand that will serve it well as it formulates responsive policy in the wake of Hurricanes Harvey and Irma. I applaud the Administration’s choice.”
