Member Biography - Andrea Levere

Photo of Andrea LevereAndrea Levere has led the Corporation for Enterprise Development (CFED) as its president since 2004. CFED is a private nonprofit organization with the mission of building assets and expanding economic opportunity for low-income people and disadvantaged communities through financial inclusion, matched savings, entrepreneurship, and affordable housing.

Under Ms. Levere’s leadership, CFED launched the Campaign for Every Kid’s Future at the 2015 Clinton Global Initiative (CGI) America. The Campaign will support the growth of Children’s Savings Accounts (CSAs) over the next five years, with an ambitious goal to ensure that at least 1.4 million children receive an account, and 25 large-scale programs are running, by 2020. CSAs directly address the lack of financial assets as the key barrier to college access and completion.

Prior to joining CFED in 1992, Levere was a director with the National Development Council. At NDC, she designed and conducted “Taking Care of Business,” a financial management program for entrepreneurs and structured financing for small business, affordable housing and local development projects.

In 2013, President Obama appointed Levere to the National Cooperative Bank’s (NCB) Board of Directors to represent the interests of low-income consumers. Currently, she serves as the Chair of ROC USA (Resident Owned Communities USA), a national social venture that converts manufactured home parks into resident-owned cooperatives. She is a member of the FDIC’s Committee on Economic Inclusion, Morgan Stanley’s Community Development Advisory Board, Capital One’s Community Advisory Council and JPMC’s Consumer Advisory Council. Levere holds a Bachelor’s degree from Brown University and an MBA from Yale University.
