Jones succeeds Alfred Pollard, who is retiring from the Agency at the end of March after a distinguished financial services career.“Alfred has served admirably as General Counsel to every FHFA Director. I am grateful for his wise counsel, hard work, and dedication to the Agency,” said Director Mark Calabria. “Clinton’s long-standing career in public service, in-depth legal expertise in housing policy, and executive leadership skills will help bolster FHFA’s work as a world-class prudential regulator.”Pollard has been the only General Counsel to serve the Agency since it was formed in 2008 and served as General Counsel to its predecessor, the Office of Federal Housing Enterprise Oversight. He has also served on several presidential mortgage fraud task forces and as a member of the Administrative Conference of the United States. In 2014, Pollard was named by National Law Journal as one of “America’s 50 Outstanding General Counsel.”​Since 2019, Jones has served as a Senior Advisor at FHFA. Prior to joining the Agency, he served for 24 years in various senior legal roles at the U.S. House of Representatives Committee on Financial Services, including General Counsel, Parliamentarian, and, most recently, Senior Counsel for the Housing and Insurance Subcommittee. Jones was also a VP at Fannie Mae and an Attorney Advisor for the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development. He has been adjunct faculty at Howard University since 1990. Jones received his J.D., Master’s in City & Regional Planning, and B.S. from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. in Daily Dose, Featured, Government, Headlines, News Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago About Author: Christina Hughes Babb Christina Hughes Babb is a reporter for DS News and MReport.

Massimiliano Allegri: Nothing to reports linking me to Chelsea

first_imgJuventus boss Massimiliano Allegri says there is “nothing” in reports linking him with Chelsea.The 48-year-old Italian has been touted as a possible successor to Guus Hiddink at Stamford Bridge, with the Dutchman in interim charge of the Blues until the end of the season.However, Allegri, who has won the Serie A title with both AC Milan and Juventus, has dismissed speculation he may be on his way to the reigning Premier League champions.Speaking at a youth tournament on Tuesday, he told Sky Italia: “There’s nothing to it. I cannot either confirm or deny something that doesn’t exist.”I want this matter over and done with now. What’s important for me right now is to get to the end of the season with Juventus and try and win some silverware.”Juventus have won 17 of their last 18 matches in all competitions and are two points behind Serie A leaders Napoli, who they play on Saturday. They are also through to the last 16 of the Champions League, where they face Bayern Munich, and the semi-finals of the Coppa Italia with Inter Milan as their opponents.–Follow Joy Sports on Twitter: @JoySportsGH.
