Keith Bickel

Bank of America

Keith Bickel is responsible for leading the Mortgage Policy office that helps Bank of America’s senior executive team define positions on key mortgage-related topics, as well as educate and advocate with external decision makers to effect desired outcomes.

In his role, Keith is responsible for managing matrixed teams across the Bank to evaluate the impacts of potential mortgage-related regulatory and legislative changes to business lines, and to develop a long-term vision for housing and mortgage finance. Toward that end, he is also responsible for working proactively with the external policy and trade group community to shape policy options and outcomes.

Prior to joining the Bank, Keith was one of two chiefs of staff for the COO at the Federal Home Loan Mortgage Corporation, with responsibility for overseeing the business transformation effort.  Previously, he led the corporate strategy group there as well.  Keith’s career experience also includes positions held at the White House and the Pentagon.

Keith is currently a board member of Critical Exposure, a DC-based non-profit serving disadvantaged school students, and has held officer positions on several other boards.  He holds both Doctorate and Masters degrees from Johns Hopkins University and a Bachelors degree from the University of Pennsylvania.
