Patenaude, 59, joins CoreLogic’s Board after a successful career in both the public and private sectors. Patenaude most recently served as the Deputy Secretary of HUD from 2017 to 2019 where she managed the day-to-day operations of the $52 billion cabinet level agency with a diverse portfolio of federal housing and community development programs and over 7,000 employees nationwide. Following Hurricanes Harvey and Maria, Patenaude oversaw the $37 billion disaster program supporting the long-term recovery efforts in Puerto Rico; Texas; Florida; Hawaii; U.S. Virgin Islands; California; North Carolina and South Carolina. From 2001 to 2007, Patenaude served as Assistant Secretary for Community Planning and Development at HUD, where she administered more than $8 billion in housing and community development funds. She also played a significant role in the Department’s efforts to rebuild the Gulf Coast region following Hurricanes Katrina and Rita by providing direct oversight of $17 billion in disaster recovery funds. Patenaude also served as HUD’s Assistant Deputy Secretary for Field Policy and Management.
In addition to her public service, Patenaude served as the President of the J. Ronald Terwilliger Foundation for Housing America’s Families, a national nonprofit, education and research organization dedicated to illuminating America’s affordable housing crisis. Before co-founding the Terwilliger Foundation, she was the Director of Housing Policy for the Bipartisan Policy Center, where she successfully led a 21-person commission to present a new direction for national housing policy. Patenaude served as Executive Vice President of the Urban Land Institute (ULI) and Founding Executive Director of the ULI Terwilliger Center for Workforce Housing. Patenaude currently serves on the Board of Habitat for Humanity International, the Bipartisan Policy Center and is also a Trustee of the Homebuilders Institute (HBI). In addition, she serves as a Board Member of the FDIC Advisory Committee on Economic Inclusion.
Patenaude earned a Bachelor of Science degree from Saint Anselm College and a Master of Science degree in Community Economic Development from Southern New Hampshire University.
