President Trump has named Pam Patenaude to become Deputy Secretary of Housing and Urban Development (HUD).
Pam Patenaude
Patenaude is president of the J. Ronald Terwilliger Foundation for America’s Families. She was formerly an Assistant Secretary for Community, Planning and Development at HUD during George W. Bush’s presidency, later becoming director of housing policy at the Bipartisan Policy Center’s Housing Commission. Last fall, Patenaude was touted as a potential HUD secretary in the Trump Administration, but was passed over in favor of retired neurosurgeon Dr. Ben Carson.
“Pam’s extensive knowledge of housing issues and dedicated service to this Department under two previous administrations makes her an exceptional choice for the position of Deputy Secretary," said Carson. "She will bring a wealth of experience and steady leadership to HUD in her new role as the Department’s chief operating officer.  I look forward to working with her to achieve more efficient and effective housing policies that create jobs, strengthen communities, and ensure safe, affordable housing for all Americans.”
“Pam is an ideal candidate for the position; she understands the issues that impact the industry and our Realtor members, and we look forward to continuing our work together with HUD and Pam upon her confirmation to ensure that owning a home remains accessible and affordable so that more individuals can realize their dream of homeownership," said National Association of Realtors (NAR) President William E. Brown. “We encourage the Senate to move quickly and confirm her nomination.”
David H. Stevens, president and CEO of the Mortgage Bankers Association, congratulated Patenaude on her appointment.
“Pam is an exceptional choice for the position,” Stevens said in a statement. “Personally, I have worked with her for a number of years and she is exactly the kind of leader who will help support the secretary and also address the critical issues ahead for HUD. She has a well-informed understanding of the agency, and essential technical knowledge of the real-estate finance industry. I would encourage the Senate to move swiftly in confirming her nomination.”
Gary Acosta, co-founder and CEO of the National Association of Hispanic Real Estate Professionals (NAHREP), said, "Pam is well versed on the issues related to Hispanic homeownership and will do an outstanding job serving the nation's housing needs."
