Vice president of target affordable production and investments, multifamily

As VP of target affordable production and investments for Freddie Mac’s multifamily business, David Leopold is responsible for approximately $5 billion in annual production. In addition, he oversees all relationships and transactions involving targeted affordable lenders, borrowers and tax credit syndicators. One of Leopold’s more recent achievements was the implementation of the Green Advantage, which “gives borrowers a choice of options to qualify for more proceeds and better pricing with a broad range of Freddie Mac Multifamily’s current loan offerings in order to finance energy and water efficiency improvements.”

Prior to joining Freddie Mac in 2015, Leopold led tax credit equity origination for Bank of America Merrill Lynch, where his team produced $1.2 billion in annual equity investments in low-income, historic and new markets tax credits.
