Craig Phillips recently resigned his position as counselor to Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin after serving as the Trump administration’s point person on housing matters for two and a half years. Philips was widely regarded as the architect of the administration’s forthcoming housing reform plan and has advocated for ending the conservatorship of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac and returning them to private ownership.

“We’re excited to have a keynote speaker with such intimate knowledge of the country’s housing reform discussions,” said Jeri Yoshida, co-founder of NEXT. “Having Craig Philips share his unique perspective on the nation’s housing finance system, in an intimate small group setting, falls right in line #NEXTDC19’s value proposition. NEXT events deliver intel that attendees can’t get elsewhere.”

#NEXTDC19 is the first women’s executive summit that brings together Washington policy makers, fintech luminaries, and mortgage lending executives, for a dedicated, ongoing conversation on housing policy’s impact on mortgage lenders and fintech providers. The summit’s sessions will focus on current policy as well as housing issues that could be impacted by the 2020 election.

“Adding Craig Phillips to our lineup for #NEXTDC19 is a testament to the strength of our alliance with NEXT Mortgage Events and our mutual commitment to promoting the highest quality connection and intel exchange for women executives in housing finance,” said Faith Schwartz, president of Housing Finance Strategies.
