MBA Appoints George Rogers VP, Legislative Affairs

Prominent political player and lobbyist George Rogers has joined the Mortgage Bankers Association as vice president of legislative affairs, the group announced in a press release.

Rogers will advocate on behalf of MBA’s legislative and policy priorities, focusing largely on Republican members of the United States Senate. He holds a Juris Doctor from Indiana University School of Law and a Bachelor of Arts in Foreign Affairs from Miami University in Oxford, Ohio. 

Prior to the MBA, he co-founded Republican Consulting, LLC, a government relations and lobbying firm.

In his decades working for the Senate and House, Rogers managed six committees on behalf of Rep. John Boehner (R-OH). Notably, he served on the presidential transition team of Donald Trump.

Rogers also led the Official Proceedings Script Team Leader of the Republican National Convention from 2008 to 2016 and held various roles for the House Oversight and Accountability Committee and for former U.S. Senator Richard Lugar (R-IN).

His other experience includes president and then CEO at Wexler & Walker, a DC-based lobbying firm that closed in 2018. Before heading to Capitol Hill, Rogers was a prosecuting attorney for domestic violence and sex crimes in Indiana.

“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.”
