Freddie Mac announced the creation of two new leadership roles to address persistent housing disparity challenges in the single-family and multifamily markets. The GSE tapped Pamela Perry, a fair housing and community development expert, to serve as the vice president of single-family equitable housing. According to Freddie Mac, “Perry will lead a newly formed team responsible for creating solutions to break through historical barriers to achieving homeownership for minority families across the income spectrum, which has direct implications for wealth accumulation.”
“With this new position we are bringing a dedicated and distinct focus to address some of the most systemic issues we face in homeownership and wealth in communities of color, ” said Donna Corley, Freddie Mac executive vice president and head of single-family business.
Amanda Nunnink will serve as Perry’s counterpart on the multifamily side as vice president of equity in multifamily housing. Nunnink has worked in Freddie Mac’s multifamily business for nearly a decade and will work to “create sustainable improvements for renters and the rental housing industry,” while advancing diversity, equity and inclusion throughout the multifamily division.
“At Freddie Mac, we are taking active steps to embed diversity, equity and inclusion in every corner of our business,” said Debby Jenkins, Freddie Mac executive vice president and head of multifamily business.
