Tom Bozzuto Appointed To National Advisory Board for ULI Terwilliger Center for Workforce Housing
Five widely renowned housing and real estate finance experts, including Tom Bozzuto, have joined the National Advisory Board of the Urban Land Institute (ULI) Terwilliger Center for Workforce Housing.
The ULI Terwilliger Center, established in 2007 by former ULI Chairman J. Ronald Terwilliger, supports the development of housing affordable to moderate-income workers, including teachers, nurses, firefighters, government workers, and police officers. Terwilliger, chairman of Atlanta-based Trammell Crow Residential, committed $5 million to the creation of the Center.
The National Advisory Board guides the Center’s program of work, which is to identify barriers to workforce housing production and eliminate those barriers by raising awareness of the affordability gap and by advocating changes in public policy. The Board, chaired by Mr. Terwilliger, has 14 members, including the five new Board members:
Mr. Tom Bozzuto has led the Bozzuto Group since its inception in 1988. He oversees the development, construction and management of almost a billion dollars of income producing and for-sale housing. During his more than thirty-year career, he has overseen and been responsible for the creation of more than 34,000 residential units with a conservatively estimated value of $3.8 billion. A graduate of Hobart College, where he now serves on the Board of Trustees, he has a master’s degree in metropolitan studies from the Maxwell School at Syracuse University. In 2008, Bozzuto was honored as recipient of ULI Washington’s annual Lifetime Achievement Award.
Ms. Carin Barth co-founded LB Capital in 1988. During 2004-2005, she took a leave of absence from LB Capital, Inc., to serve as Chief Financial Officer of HUD.
Secretary Steve Preston served as HUD Secretary from June 8, 2008 through January 19, 2009. Prior to joining HUD, Secretary Preston served as Administrator of the U.S. Small Business Administration. Before assuming oversight of SBA, he served as Executive Vice President of the ServiceMaster Company, where he also served as Chief Financial Officer.
Mr. Jonathan Reckford was unanimously elected chief executive officer by the board of directors of Habitat for Humanity International in August 2005.
Mr. Ronald A. Rosenfeld chaired the Federal Housing Finance Board from December 14, 2004 through January 19, 2009. From July 2001 to December 2004, he served as President of Ginnie Mae, a wholly owned government corporation established within HUD to promote nationwide access to mortgage credit. He previously served as Secretary of Commerce for the state of Oklahoma from 1995-1998.
“Carin, Tom, Steve, Jonathan, and Ronnie bring a wealth of knowledge and expertise to the Center,” said Mr. Terwilliger. “In communities nationwide, moderate-income working families are being pushed farther and farther away from their jobs to find housing that is affordable. We must combat the increasing traffic congestion, air pollution, and sprawl that is overwhelming the nation’s metropolitan areas. The Center is committed to promoting mixed-income communities that are close to transportation hubs and employment centers.”

– former HUD Secretary Henry Cisneros, currently Chairman of City View in Los Angeles;
– Bart Harvey, former Chairman of Enterprise Community Partners and the 2008 laureate of the ULI
