I interviewed Kimberly Johnson about a year ago as she was still settling into her role as Chief Operating Officer of Fannie Mae. She discussed her path from Chief Risk Officer to COO in charge of technology, data, enterprise models, operations, the enterprise program management office, and resiliency. She also discussed her vision for innovation at Fannie Mae. A year on, I thought it would be a good opportunity to catch up with her to find out how things have progressed for her and for the company.
She described the agile transformation that has been afoot at the company. She described the innovative ideas the company is contemplating and the process used to draw ideas from across the company and prioritize them. She also talked further about her vision for the company in the foreseeable future.
