Judith E. Dupre, a senior international advisor to the FDIC, has been named executive secretary of the Federal Financial Institutions Examination Council.
Dupre, who is a career employee of the FDIC, will be responsible for running the council’s day to day operations.
The council, which is made up of the heads of all the financial regulators, establishes uniform examination standards for financial institutions, including new guidelines recently issued for securing online banking transactions.
NCUA Chairman Debbie Matz chairs the council, a position that rotates among the members.
“Judy’s background and experience make her well suited for the position of FFIEC Executive Secretary,” Matz said in a statement. “I am confident that her skilled leadership will build on an excellent program enhanced by her predecessor, Paul T. Sanford, and further strengthen this council’s important work.”
Sanford is now chief of staff of the new Consumer Financial Protection Bureau’s Office of Large Bank Supervision.
