Biography

Charles E. "Ed" Haldeman, Jr. is chief executive officer of Freddie Mac, a publicly-traded company that is the second largest source of mortgage financing in the United States and a leader in the nation's efforts to keep families in their homes during the nation's current housing crisis.

Haldeman has 35 years of experience in finance and as a corporate leader. He joined Freddie Mac from Putnam Investments where he served as Chairman of Putnam Investment Management, LLC, the investment advisor for the Putnam Funds, from July 2008 until June 30, 2009. Prior to assuming the role of chairman of Putnam Investment Management, he served as president and chief executive officer of Putnam Investments, a position to which he was appointed in 2003 and charged with reorganizing the business and improving business policies and compliance following a series of probes into the industry's business practices.

Based on that success, CFA Magazine named him "One of the Most Influential CFA Institute Members" in December 2006, citing his personal commitment to fiduciary duty, his work to restore Putnam's reputation and his creation of an organizational culture that reinforced trust in the firm.

Haldeman also spearheaded the sale of Putnam Investments to Power Financial Corporation in January 2007.
