Anthony Renzi weighed a position with private equity investor Wilbur Ross' fast-growing mortgage empire before opting this week to leave Freddie Mac for a senior mortgage job with Citigroup, industry sources told National Mortgage News, a sister publication of American Banker.

Renzi, who joined Freddie Mac last spring as part of a major reorganization at the GSE, resigned from the company effective May 11.

At Freddie he holds the title of executive vice president of single-family business, operations and information technology. He joined the company in April 2011 after being forced out of GMAC Mortgage.
