The multifamily division of Freddie Mac promoted Bill Buskirk and Steve Johnson. Buskirk was named chief operating officer of the division, while Johnson steps up as head of production and sales, a role he has held on an interim basis since May.
As chief operating officer, Buskirk will oversee business strategy, asset management, marketing and loan servicing among other responsibilities. He started with the McLean, Virginia-based government-sponsored enterprise in 2002 and has served as chief financial officer in charge of business reporting, budgeting and forecasting for the multifamily unit over the past 13 years.
Johnson, before taking over the helm of his current team, served as vice president of Freddie Mac small business lending and targeted affordable housing. As the new head of production and sales, Johnson will continue to spearhead sourcing, originating and structuring of all multifamily loan products.
