After nine years of perfect attendance, Mary Rupp has retired as board secretary for the NCUA, the agency said Friday.
Rupp, a 27-year NCUA veteran who never missed a board meeting in the nine years she held her final post, has been succeeded by senior trial attorney Gerard Poliquin, the agency said.
“Mary has shown a remarkable commitment to NCUA and to her work. We’re grateful for all she has done here and for upholding high standards in public service. We’ll miss her, and we wish her a long and happy retirement,” NCUA Board Chairman Debbie Matz said in the announcement.
“The board is fortunate to have her replacement be an equally capable and dedicated individual,” added Board Member Michael Fryzel. “Jerry Poliquin brings a strong legal and technical background to the position, and I look forward to working with him.”
Rupp also had been senior policy adviser to former Board Member JoAnn Johnson. She holds a bachelor’s degree from Newton College and a law degree from Catholic University
Poliquin – who has been a member of the agency’s Supervisory Review Committee – joined the NCUA in 1996 after serving as an enforcement attorney with the Office of Thrift Supervision and holds a master’s degree from Boston University and a law degree from Seattle University, the NCUA said.
