Hedge fund trade group, Managed Funds Association, has tapped Roger Hollingsworth to serve as executive vice president and managing director of government relations. 

Starting Sept. 8, Hollingsworth will be responsible for implementing MFA’s political and government relations outreach program.

Hollingsworth joins MFA from the United States Senate Banking Housing and Urban Affairs Committee, where he served as deputy staff director and senior policy adviser to Committee Chairman Christopher Dodd (D-Conn.).

Richard Baker, MFA president and CEO, said, “We are extremely pleased to have Roger join MFA in this important capacity.  His exceptional credentials and proven skills are ideal for our Association, and we are confident that his expertise will help us facilitate an important expansion of MFA’s agenda as we deepen our policy engagement in Washington.”

Hollingsworth will work directly with Baker to develop and coordinate MFA’s legislative and regulatory priorities and initiatives.
 
As deputy staff director of the Senate Banking Committee, Hollingsworth coordinated strategy for moving the committee’s financial services legislative agenda through the 110th Congress, including measures recently enacted in response to the ongoing crisis in global mortgage, credit and capital markets.
