Peter Monroe went on to serve with United States Secretary of Housing and Urban Development Jack Kemp as the Chief Operating Officer at the Federal Housing Administration (FHA).

Peter Monroe is best known for serving as President and CEO of the Resolution Trust Corporation - the Federal agency charged with overseeing the $400 billion clean-up of the Savings and Loan disaster.

Earlier in his career, Monroe held a senior housing position on the immediate staff of HUD Secretary George Romney.

Peter Monroe graduated Phi Beta Kappa from Williams College, was a Rhodes Scholar finalist, graduated with a Master's Degree from Oxford University, and obtained his law degree from Harvard University.

In 2006, Peter Monroe sought but failed to attain the nomination for the Republican Party's official Senate candidate in Florida's primary elections, losing to Katherine Harris.

During his campaign, Monroe implored the Florida Congressional delegation to trade oil drilling rights in the Gulf of Mexico for a federal catastrophic insurance program intended to spread natural disaster risk throughout the US. The Palm Beach Post, the South Florida Sun Sentinel, the Florida Times Union, and the Daytona Beach News Journal all recognized Monroe's leadership on Florida's insurance crisis and endorsed him in Florida's Republican Senate Primary.
