Vice president of affordable lending and access to credit

In 2015, Danny Gardner joined Freddie Mac as VP of single-family affordable lending and access to credit. Gardner has more than two decades of industry experience at companies such as Capital One, CitiMortage and the National Community Stabilization Trust, a nonprofit organization where he served as COO and worked with financial institutions to stabilize local communities affected by the foreclosure crisis.

Gardner is now responsible for Freddie Mac’s efforts to responsibly increase the availability of affordable mortgages for low- to moderate-income borrowers. Recently, the organization partnered with the nonprofit Next Step Network to launch a consumer education curriculum aimed at buyers of manufactured homes.
