BALTIMORE, Dec. 7, 2015 Faith Schwartz, senior vice president for government and public affairs at CoreLogic, has been elected the new chair of the HLP board of directors.
Schwartz joined CoreLogic in 2013 to lead a Washington-based effort in building business and relationships with the government, non-profits, think tanks and universities. She now leads the public policy efforts for CoreLogic in Washington D.C. Schwartz is one of the founders of Hope LoanPort, now known as HLP. She has served on the organization’s board of directors since 2009 and initially founded the portal through efforts at the HOPE NOW Alliance.
“Since its founding, HLP has been instrumental in coordinating efforts within the housing industry to help homeowners in need, whether it’s been to save people from foreclosure or help them purchase their first home,” said Schwartz. “I am honored to be elected to this position and I look forward to working with CEO Cam Melchiorre to continue developing solutions that will help more people buy homes and sustain homeownership.”
Prior to joining CoreLogic, Schwartz led the HOPE NOW Alliance, a non-profit coalition created in 2007 to bring together mortgage companies and investors, Federal Reserve Banks, government agencies, and government-sponsored enterprises (GSEs) to help homeowners in distress stay in their homes. She was a public face throughout the housing crisis, participating in interviews, face-to-face outreach events with distressed homeowners, and through congressional testimony at the Federal and State level.
Schwartz holds a BSBA in accounting from Shippensburg State College and an MBA with a finance concentration from the University of Pittsburgh.
