FHFA Announces Staffing Update

FHFA Director of the Office of Congressional Affairs and Communications Antonio White

The Federal Housing Finance Agency (FHFA) has announced that Antonio White has been named Director of the Office of Congressional Affairs and Communications (OCAC).

OCAC is responsible for the FHFA’s public and media relations strategy, stakeholder relations, internal communications, and content management oversight of the FHFA public website, which provides a wide range of information to external stakeholders. OCAC is also responsible for working with members of Congress to respond to inquiries and provide information on the programs and operations of FHFA and its regulated entities. OCAC analyzes legislation, tracks statutory changes, and prepares FHFA officials to testify before Congress.

“Antonio brings an immense depth of experience in communications, corporate and civic outreach, and stakeholder engagement that will be a valuable asset to the FHFA leadership team,” said FHFA Director Sandra L. Thompson. “His strategic guidance will be essential as we continue to promote equitable access to affordable and sustainable housing in a safe and sound manner.”

White’s public affairs experience spans two presidential administrations, philanthropy, and the financial services sector. He served in senior advisory roles at the U.S. Department of the Treasury during both the Obama and Biden Administrations, including most recently as Treasury’s Deputy Assistant Secretary for Community Engagement, where he advised Secretary Yellen and her senior staff on stakeholder communications and directed Treasury’s external affairs strategy during the pandemic recovery. He also held senior communications and government affairs roles at the Gates Foundation and Bank of America, respectively. A native of Cleveland, Ohio, he earned a BA from Miami University, and an MA from Morgan State University. He is a recipient of the Treasury Department’s Distinguished Service Award and was recognized by Fortune Magazine on its “2022 Top 40 Under 40” list.

Latest at the Agency

White’s addition as Director of the OCAC is the FHFA’s latest move to bolster its leadership, as Luis A. Campudoni has been named Chief Information Officer, and Mary Peterman was named Chief Financial Officer.

Campudoni brings to the FHFA more than 25 years of experience in information technology (IT). He joined FHFA after spending two years as the Deputy Chief Information Officer at the Small Business Administration (SBA), where he led, executed, and oversaw the information technology products, services, and operations that supported the SBA’s mission. Campudoni has also held senior leadership roles at the Department of Homeland Security, the Metropolitan Washington Council of Governments, the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), and Customs and Border Protection. Campudoni holds Master of Science degrees in project management, organizational leadership, and IT.

Peterman is a certified public accountant (CPA), and a certified government financial manager with more than 30 years of financial management experience. She recently joined FHFA after serving as the Controller/Deputy Director of the Division of Finance for the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC). Prior to FDIC, Peterman served in leadership positions for the Administrative Office of the U.S. Courts, the Department of Homeland Security, and various local government organizations. Peterman has also held leadership positions for the Association of Government Accountants, including serving as national president and national treasurer. Peterman holds a master’s degree in public administration.
