Ricardo Anzaldua has been appointed general counsel of Freddie Mac, nine months after moving to the federal home loan mortgage company.

Freddie Mac announced this week that Anzaldua had taken on the GC role. He joined the McLean, Virginia-based company in May 2018 as executive vice president and senior legal adviser to CEO Donald Layton. At the time, Fannie Mae’s GC William McDavid was eyeing retirement, with Anzaldua as his successor. McDavid officially retired this month.
