WASHINGTON – The Senate Banking Committee has tentatively scheduled a hearing July 22 to consider the nomination of Mark Brickell to supervise Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae. The Brickell confirmation hearing would become the fourth congressional hearing scheduled on the government sponsored enterprises in the wake of Freddie Mac’s accounting problems and management shakeup last month. Brickel is a 25-year veteran of J.P. Morgan Chase Co. and former chairman of the International Swaps and Derivatives Association. He was most recently chief executive of Blackbird Holdings Inc., which operates an electronic trading system for derivatives.
