Freddie Mac Names Two New VPs of Single-Family Seller Engagement

Freddie Mac has announced that Eric Wilson and Jonathan Kunkle have been named VPs of Seller Engagement for the Single-Family Division. In their roles, Wilson will oversee Eastern Regions of the country and Jonathan will lead Western Regions. Both will establish strategic direction and provide the primary source of market intelligence and seller business perspective within Freddie Mac for their regions.

“Eric and Jonathan both bring strong leadership and extensive experience in mortgage business processes, technology, capital markets and risk management to the Single-Family Seller Engagement team,” said Kevin Kauffman, Single-Family VP of Client Engagement at Freddie Mac. “Their well-rounded skillset will increase Freddie Mac’s sphere of influence with sellers as we innovate to solve industry challenges and grow our business.”

Wilson joined Freddie Mac in 2019, most recently serving as a Senior Director of Sales for the Midwest Region. Since that time, he led a team responsible for seller engagement across 400 Freddie Mac sellers in the region. His expanded role will establish goals and incentives to support corporate and divisional business objectives, while broadening relationships with sellers and key decision-makers. Wilson has more than 25 years in the industry, driving business development and organic growth for leading Fortune 500 financial institutions.

Kunkle joins Freddie Mac from Covius Holdings Inc. (previously LenderLive Network) after more than 20 years of experience in roles at the company providing sales leadership, operational management, and technical and product oversight across residential mortgage origination, loan servicing and capital markets. In his new role, Kunkle will use these strengths and unique talents to lead and coordinate Freddie Mac’s continuous market presence and relationship management efforts in his region.

This is the latest move by the GSE to bolster its executive team, after the recent addition of Roy Swan to its Board of Directors. Swan is an executive with more than 30 years of experience in law, banking, corporate finance, public policy, and investment management. Swan is currently the Director of Mission Investments at the Ford Foundation, where he leads a team making $1 billion in impact investments over a 10-year period. Swan has served in his current role as head of Mission Investments for the Ford Foundation since 2018. Prior to Ford, he held various positions at Morgan Stanley from 2008 to 2018, including President and COO of Morgan Stanley Trust, and Co-Head, Global Sustainable Finance. Swan held various positions at Carver Federal Savings Bank, departing as EVP and CFO.

Among other roles, Swan also served in various positions at Time Warner Inc., JPMorgan Chase & Co., as Chief Investment Officer at Upper Manhattan Empowerment Zone and as an Associate at Salomon Brothers, Inc. Swan began his career as a Financial Analyst at First Boston Corporation, as a Public Service Fellow at the Coro Foundation, and as an Attorney in the Corporate Securities Group of Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom LLP.
