Former HUD Deputy Secretary Brian Montgomery returns to Radian

Former HUD Deputy Secretary Brian Montgomery has rejoined Radian Group’s board of directors, the company announced Tuesday.

Montgomery returns to Radian after his second tenure at the US Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), most recently as deputy secretary. He served as FHA Commissioner from 2005 to 2009 and from 2018 to 2020. Montgomery first joined Radian’s board in 2012 before stepping down on his appointment as FHA Commissioner in 2017.

“We are delighted to welcome Brian back to Radian’s board of directors, and we congratulate him on completing his second tenure at HUD,” said Radian chairman Herb Wender. “Brian’s tremendous expertise and acumen were of great value at the HUD, and the same will be true as he returns to Radian’s board. We look forward to his contributions to Radian’s ongoing work of making affordable and sustainable homeownership possible for more Americans.”

Montgomery will serve a new term at Radian’s board, which now consists of 11 members.

“I am excited to recommence my work in support of such an innovative and progressive company,” Montgomery said. “Radian stands out from its competition in many ways, in particular, with its commitment to deliver new and better mortgage and real estate solutions and help borrowers achieve their dream of sustainable homeownership. It is an honor to have a second opportunity to help them carry out their vision.”
