The Mortgage Bankers Association (MBA) hired attorney and lobbyist George Rogers as vice president of legislative affairs.

In his new role, Rogers will advocate on behalf of MBA’s legislative and policy priorities on Capitol Hill, with a primary focus on Republican members of the U.S. Senate. Rogers was previously at Republic Consulting LLC, a government relations and lobbying firm he co-founded in 2019. Earlier in his career, he was CEO at Wexler & Walker, a unit of Hill+Knowlton Strategies, and held several Capitol Hill positions including policy advisor and counsel for former Rep. John Boehner (R-OH) during his time as Speaker of the House and House Minority Leader.

“George is an accomplished leader with a proven track record of developing and executing successful public policy advocacy campaigns both on behalf of clients and during his time providing counsel to a broad range of leaders on Capitol Hill,” said Bill Killmer, MBA’s chief lobbyist and senior vice president of legislative and political affairs. “I am confident his well-established network of relationships – and thorough knowledge of financial services and housing issues – will help lead to successful outcomes for MBA and its members. I am excited to have him on our lobbying team, joining our deep legislative bench alongside Vice Presidents Alden Knowlton and Ethan Saxon.”
