Last week HUD Secretary Steven Preston convened a first ever leadership Roundtable around the intersection of responsible subprime mortgage lending and financial literacy. Building on the May 28th meeting of my Committee on the Under-Served for the Council, the Secretary brought together more than 60 influential leaders from government, community and the private sector.
Pictured here is my friend and the Secretary's deputy chief of staff Anoop Prakash, Cara Heiden, co president of Wells Fargo Mortgage, Secretary Preston, Richard Hartnack, vice chairman of US Bank, and myself.
A special commendation to Anoop for his leadership in bringing this together.
Onward with HOPE
