Congratulations to Peter Walsh!

After almost eight years with the RIHousing team, the agency would like to congratulate Deputy Director Peter Walsh on his impending retirement.

Peter has served as the Deputy Director for Homeownership and Administration, where he has overseen the corporation’s Homeownership origination and servicing, the RIHousing HelpCenter and the Information Technology, Human Resources, Communications and Facilities functions within RIHousing. 

“Peter has been an outstanding member of the senior team at RIHousing. We have benefitted enormously from his business acumen as well as his commitment to the communities and people of Rhode Island,” said Barbara Fields, Executive Director of RIHousing. “We will miss Peter tremendously – particularly his unique style and sense of humor – but wish him all the best in his next chapter..”

Prior to his appointment as Deputy Director in June 2015, Walsh served as Director of Homeownership and Customer Service at the corporation, where he oversaw a dramatic increase in the number of mortgage originations administered by RIHousing and its partners. Peter joined the corporation in 2009 as Director of External Relations, following nearly three decades in the banking industry with Citizens Bank and Bank RI.
