Departing Freddie Mac ( FRE) CEO David Moffett could be a man in high demand for reeling financial services companies looking to remake their board rooms. The 57-year-old Moffett announced his sudden resignation from Freddie Mac last week after just six months on the job. He indicated that he is looking to return to the financial services sector, according to the company. His last day is today. While the former US Bancorp ( USB) CFO may have relished the opportunity to head a major company for the first time when he took Freddie's reins, his skills are likely better suited elsewhere. There is rising sentiment that battered financial services companies need to overhaul their executive suites and board rooms, who allowed them to foray into risky securities and loans that led to the sector's meltdown. "Moffett will be on everybody's radar screen," says Carter Burgess, a managing director and head of board recruiting practice at RSR Partners in Greenwich, Conn. "He'll either get a job at a less-destroyed financial services company or go back to being a board member." Others say Moffett may prefer to work at a smaller, less problematic bank. Moffett declined to be interviewed at this time, according to a Freddie Mac spokeswoman. The timing for a move may be opportune, experts including Burgess contend. Banks need to add more directors that have specific financial and commercial banking expertise. " Bank boards are not populated by people who can get their arms around the business," Burgess says.
