Ian Ouwerkerk, vice president Multifamily Underwriting

During that time, Mr. Ouwerkerk has exercised exceptional skill at balancing credit risk management while finding innovative solutions for our sponsors and lenders. He has been instrumental in executing several of our large complex deals over the last few years.
In his new role, Mr. Ouwerkerk will have oversight for the conventional underwriting teams in the Central and Southeast regions. In addition, he will take a leadership role in our large regional pool transactions across the country.
Pamela Dent, vice president, Multifamily Asset Management
Pamela Dent joined Freddie Mac in 2011, and has earned respect both internally and externally for her skill in overseeing Multifamily special servicing, including asset resolution, real estate owned properties, borrower transactions, structured transactions and securitized transactions. Ms. Dent will now lead asset management activities for Multifamily — owning and maintaining the asset management component of our servicing standard.
