Ms. McCulloch, a seasoned financial services and housing industry executive and regulatory attorney with more than 30 years in the industry, will assume the position as a result of the retirement of the Bank’s current executive vice president, chief legal officer and corporate secretary, Suzanne Titus-Johnson.

“I am thrilled to welcome Anne to the team.

“Suzanne has been an integral member of the Bank’s leadership team for 35 years. Throughout her tenure, she has provided solid legal counsel and problem-solving strategies that have positioned us for the future,” said Bazemore. “On behalf of the board of directors and the Bank’s leadership team, I’d like to thank Suzanne for her outstanding guidance and trusted partnership throughout her tenure.” Titus-Johnson’s effective retirement date will be December 17, 2021.

As chief legal officer, Ms. McCulloch will be responsible for providing legal counsel to the Bank’s management and board of directors, including advising on regulatory matters affecting the development and execution of the Bank’s business strategies, policies, and practices. She will also direct and manage the Bank’s legal staff, outside counsel, and the public affairs team.

Ms. McCulloch presently serves as president and chief executive officer for Housing Partnership Equity Trust, a national, public purpose real estate investment trust focused on preserving and maintaining affordable rental housing throughout the United States. A recognized authority on housing, she has held senior positions at Fannie Mae, the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation, and the Resolution Trust Corporation.
