The NCUA announced Thursday it has promoted one from within and hired one from outside to fill two open positions: the agency’s chief information officer and the deputy director of the Office of Examination and Insurance.
Ronnie Levine has been named CIO, joining the NCUA from the Bureau of Land Management where she served as CIO and assistant director for Information Resources Management. Previously, Levine worked at the Department of Transportation’s Maritime Administration and for the Joint Chiefs of Staff on information technology issues.
Levine has an undergraduate degree in information systems from Virginia State University and a graduate degree in business from Dowling University in New York. Levine starts April 23 and replaces Doug Verner as CIO. Verner retired last December after 25 years with the agency.
Twenty-year NCUA veteran Tim Segerson has been promoted to deputy director of the Office of Examination and Insurance. Segerson joined NCUA in 1992 as an examiner in Providence, R.I. He has since served as a problem case officer, supervisory examiner, director of supervision, and Director of Risk Management. Segerson has also completed numerous development details while at NCUA.
Segerson graduated with honors from Rhode Island College in 1990 with a degree in economics and a second concentration in accounting. Segerson replaces John Kutchey, who recently became the NCUA’s deputy executive director.
“Both Ronnie and Tim will play key roles in shaping NCUA’s future,” said Chairman Debbie Matz. “Their professional backgrounds, personable management styles, and forward looking perspectives are well suited for NCUA. Ronnie will ensure that NCUA stays at the cutting edge of information technology management providing critical support to our examiners, and Tim will facilitate our ongoing efforts to reach out and better communicate with credit unions.”
