Santos Appointed to NASCUS Board
NASCUS announced Friday that Kim Santos, director of the Office of Credit Unions at the Wisconsin Department of Financial Institutions, was appointed to the NASCUS board of directors to fill a vacancy left by the resignation of former chairman John Kolhoff.
Kolhoff stepped down to focus on priorities in his role as a Michigan regulator, the association said.
Santos has been an active NASCUS member, having served on many of the association’s committees and task forces.
“Kim is a respected long-time member of NASCUS and the state regulatory community, and she will be a valuable addition to our Board,” said NASCUS Chair Mike Wettrich, the Ohio credit union regulator.
Santos has been with the OCU for more than 20 years. Prior to being named as OCU’s director in 2013, she served as the organization’s deputy director.
“We congratulate Kim on her appointment to the NASCUS Board,” said Mary Martha Fortney, president/CEO of NASCUS. “Obviously, as the regulator with a state system the size of Wisconsin’s, Kim joins the board with a solid understanding of the diverse issues and challenges our system faces today.”
