Montgomery, FHA Commissioner and Assistant Secretary for Housing, U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, headlined a powerful lineup of industry professionals who gathered Monday as part of the Legal League 100 Servicer Summit. A long-running industry tradition, this latest Summit unfolded as part of the annual Five Star Conference and Expo at the Hyatt Regency in Dallas, Texas.Montgomery spoke about his return to HUD during a Q&A with Five Star Institute President and CEO Ed Delgado. Having served as FHA Commissioner from 2005 to January 2009, Montgomery stepped back into the role in May 2018, following his nomination by President Donald J. Trump and confirmation by the Senate. Montgomery also previously served as Vice Chairman of The Collingwood Group and, before initially joining HUD, he worked in the Executive Offices of President George H.W. Bush and President George W.
