Fannie Mae Single-Family has announced that Malloy Evans, previously chief credit officer of the division, will be promoted to executive vice president and head of single-family.
Effective immediately, Evans will lead the team responsible for establishing Fannie Mae’s single-family mortgage acquisition standards. He succeeds Andrew Bon Salle, who departed in December. Evans has been with the government-sponsored entity for the past 17 years, serving in various roles.
In his position as chief credit officer, Evans oversaw first-line credit risk from mortgage acquisition through disposition. He also spearheaded the establishment of selling and servicing risk policies and eligibility standards for the loans Fannie Mae acquired.

“Malloy brings impressive qualifications and deep knowledge of our Single-Family business and Fannie Mae, from risk management and credit policy to servicing and loss mitigation. He has a mission-first mindset that embodies our corporate values and a strong commitment to serving homebuyers and lenders while ensuring the continued safety and soundness of the housing finance industry,” said Fannie Mae president David Benson.
“For more than a decade, I’ve witnessed Fannie Mae’s Single-Family team consistently prioritize sustainable, affordable homeownership, notably over the past year as we helped homeowners stay in their homes during COVID-19, and most recently with our announcement of a new refinance option to help lower-income families,” Evans said. “I’m proud of our commitment to help people across America gain access to sustainable homeownership, and I look forward to leading our Single-Family Business as we continue building on this progress.”
