Bruns Named NCUA Deputy Inspector General
William Bruns has been selected to be the NCUA’s next deputy inspector general.
Bruns started at the NCUA in 2008 as a senior auditor in the Inspector General’s office at the NCUA, the agency said in a release. In this capacity, Bruns was responsible for auditing and evaluating the agency’s business programs as well as the safety and soundness of federal credit unions and the Share Insurance Fund.
“Since he joined NCUA, Bruns has been instrumental in conducting or overseeing nearly every material loss review of liquidated credit unions, as well as overseeing the agency’s Financial Statement Audits and collaborating on congressional requests,” the NCUA said in a release.
Bruns brings more than 26 years of federal auditing experience to the position. Before joining the NCUA, Bruns worked in the U.S. Postal Service Office of Inspector General and the U.S. Department of the Treasury Office of Inspector General. He is a member of the Association of Government Accountants and the Institute of Internal Auditors.
“He brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to the position,” NCUA Inspector General James Hagen said on Tuesday. “Working with him in the past, I have found he maintains the independence of the Office of Inspector General while offering solid and constructive recommendations on how the agency can improve its operations.”
Bruns earned his bachelor’s degree in management at Purdue University.
