As we leverage technology to deliver a world class consumer and client experience, Larry and John will help lead the fulfillment of that vision.”


Fannie Mae has appointed Jeffery Hayward to the newly created position of EVP and Chief Administrative Officer. It has appointed Michele Evans EVP and Head of Multifamily.

The new role of CAO reflects Fannie Mae’s ongoing commitment to affordable housing, diversity and inclusion, and leading the industry with the company’s ESG efforts.

“We’re fortunate to have someone of Jeff’s unique experience and talent to help us mobilize our most important asset—our human capital,” said David C. Benson, President, Fannie Mae. “Michele has built strong, trusted relationships with our Multifamily customers, driven change and innovation, and managed Multifamily’s business operations. At a time when affordable rental housing is more important than ever to our country, she is the right person to lead our Multifamily team.”
