NCUA Veteran Named Deputy Executive Director
ALEXANDRIA, Va.-The NCUA Board has approved Region IV Director Jane A. Walters as the agency's new deputy executive director. "Jane Walters has been a tremendous asset to the agency. Her skills and broad experience, particularly in program matters, will greatly assist me as the agency continues to address new and challenging issues," Executive Director Len Skiles said. "Jane is extremely capable. She is a proven leader who has demonstrated again and again that she has excellent management expertise. This headquarters post will enable Jane to use her myriad of talents." Walters has been serving as the regional director in Austin, Texas since May 2001 but in her new post will be assisting with the day-to-day running of the agency. She will be replacing J. Owen Cole, who will now serve as director of the Office of Capital Markets and Planning. She has served in a variety of positions during her career with NCUA, which began in 1981, from examiner to controller to director of Region II and the former Region IV before NCUA's district realignment a few years ago. Walters holds a bachelor's degree in accounting from the University of Dayton and an MBA from Loyola University of Chicago.
