Bill Killmer

SVP, Legislative & Political Affairs @ Mortgage Bankers Association

Bill Killmer is Senior Vice President for Legislative and Political Affairs at the Mortgage Bankers Association (MBA). A veteran of nearly three decades in the housing arena, Bill joined MBA in 2010 and is responsible for managing the real estate finance industry’s federal legislative, grassroots, and political fundraising activities, in close coordination with the MBA member leadership and its public policy, economics, public affairs, and lobbying teams. He oversees MBA’s direct outreach to Congress, and is a regular guest speaker on the intersection of politics, policy, and industry issues. Under Killmer’s leadership, grassroots participation through MBA’s Mortgage Action Alliance has tripled, while donations to MORPAC, the industry’s political action committee, have more than doubled, enhancing the association’s ability to develop and execute effective advocacy strategies on the industry’s behalf.

Killmer came to MBA after nearly 20 years in the policy space at the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB), where he last served as Executive Vice President for Advocacy, managing all aspects of the group’s public policy outreach. During his tenure at both organizations, he has been named as a Washington trade association “Top Lobbyist” by publications such as The Hill and CEO Update. He previously served as a Senior Legislative Officer for Congressional and Intergovernmental Affairs at the U.S. Department of Labor during the George H.W. Bush administration. Killmer holds a Bachelor’s degree in Business Administration (BBA), with a concentration in Finance, from Baylor University.
