Beacon announced that it has appointed Christine Stroh Reddy as executive vice president, general counsel, and corporate secretary.

Reddy will join Beacon later this month and assume her new responsibilities immediately as current general counsel Ross D. Cooper transitions to his previously announced advisory role.

Prior to joining Beacon, Reddy served 15 years as vice president, deputy general counsel and deputy corporate secretary at Fannie Mae. Beacon’s new executive held roles of increasing responsibility and managed the corporate governance functions as well as legal services for corporate operations at the financial services company.

“I am extremely pleased to welcome Christine to the Beacon team,” said Julian Francis, president and CEO of Beacon. “Christine’s deep governance and legal expertise, combined with her background in housing finance and digital strategy, will strengthen Beacon as we continue to innovate for our customers and deliver improved growth and operational performance to drive shareholder value.”

I am eager to partner with Julian and the executive team and add my perspectives as we work together to deliver on the Company’s strategic initiatives.”
