Fannie Mae announced Tuesday that it had elected Frederick B. "Bart" Harvey 3rd to fill the last remaining vacancy on its 13-member board of directors.
Mr. Harvey, 59, is to be on the board's housing and community finance committee and its technology and operations committee. He is the 10th director elected since 2004.
He retired as chairman of the board of trustees of Enterprise Community Partners in March after working for the company since 1984. He was Enterprise's chief executive officer from 1994 to 2007 and vice chairman from 1985 to 1994.
Fannie Mae said that Mr. Harvey "is a noted leader in the field of housing and community development and was instrumental in working with Congress to create the Low-Income Housing Tax Credit."
He was appointed by Congress to the Millennial Housing Commission in 2000 and has been on several housing industry boards, including those of the Federal Home Loan Bank of Atlanta, National Housing Conference, National Housing Trust, and Fannie Mae's Housing Impact Advisory Council.
