In late March, HUD senior advisor Ed Golding became the Principal Deputy Assistant Secretary for HUD’s Office of Housing, making Mr. Golding the highest ranking official at the Federal Housing Administration and the Office of Housing.
Most recently, Mr. Golding served as Senior Advisor on Housing Finance to the HUD Secretary. Biniam Gebre, who had served as the Acting FHA Commissioner/Assistant Secretary for the Office of Housing since August 2014, has joined HUD Deputy Secretary Nani Coloretti’s staff as a Senior Advisor.
The last confirmed Assistant Secretary for the Office of Housing and FHA Commissioner, Carol Galante, left in the summer of 2014. No one has been nominated by President Barack Obama for the position.
