Dan McPheeters is a Senior Manager at Reference Point, where he leverages his business and public policy experience to help clients solve their most challenging issues. Dan has successfully built and led both direct-report and matrixed teams and has experience designing products and R&D processes.
Prior to joining Reference Point, Dan led a product design and strategy team at Fannie Mae. Most notably, Dan helped develop and lead the enterprise’s strategy to increase affordable housing supply. Examples of his team’s work include developing a business case for distributing high-quality manufactured homes through land developer networks rather than traditional manufactured home retailers; researching the impact of 2-4 unit homes and accessory dwelling units on affordability; and launching updates to Fannie Mae’s renovation, construction-to-perm, and manufactured home loan policy guidelines.
Prior to joining Fannie Mae, Dan led Secondary and Capital Markets Policy at the Mortgage Bankers Association. In this role, he served as the primary member point of contact and subject matter expert on policy issues relating to the secondary mortgage market, which included policies set by Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac, and Ginnie Mae. During his time representing the industry, he renegotiated the representation and warranty framework for Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac’s Selling and Servicing Guides, helped lead the policy response to Fannie/Freddie reform legislation, and secured an exemption for mortgage bankers from FINRA’s Rule 4210 margining requirements, among other achievements.
