The First Executive Interview: Dan Mudd

We grabbed some time and some executives at our Post 200 event a couple of weeks ago and tried out a new feature for the WashBiz blog. This is our first of what we hope is many executive interviews. Today: Dan Mudd, CEO of Fannie Mae, who had talked to reporter Thomas Heath for a piece that turned into a Value Added column.

Mudd updated Heath on what he's reading and talked about the housing market. Check out what he had to say, and let us know what you think.

Great, Danny's giving advice on when to jump into the market to buy a house and he says that 'we don't do that here at Fannie Mae.' Hey Danny, did you mention that Fannie Mae BOUGHT your house?
His father had a close relationship with Jim Johnson and that's how he got his job. He has no understanding of what lay people are going through since he has not one iota of personal perspective. The sooner he's out, the sooner the company can move forward.
At a town hall he was asked about the ever increasing amount of load for health care the employee's were asked to shoulder. His response? He has the same pain, he has to pay those same rates. So Danny thinks that equates to the worker in the mail room with two children. Again, no perspective.
