ALEXANDRIA, Va.-NCUA has tapped Senior Staff Attorney Mike McKenna to become the agency’s new deputy executive director. McKenna worked as a temporary executive assistant for both former NCUA Board Member Geoff Bacino and Board Member Deborah Matz, which helped broaden his experience at NCUA. “He was just a terrific choice. He is bright, hard-working, has an excellent sense of humor, gets along with everyone, and makes everyone he works for look good,” Matz said. “I think they made an excellent choice. Mike is one of the most well rounded of the professional staff there. I think he’s going to do a great job as I think Mark Treichel will do in Region I,” Bacino commented. Current Deputy Executive Director Mark Treichel has been named the new Region I director following Layne Bumgardner’s retirement earlier this year. McKenna himself is “delighted” with the decision. Previously, he had generally worked on all legal issues, but now he will be delving down into the nuts and bolts of the agency, he explained. NCUA Executive Director Len Skiles, who made the promotion with input from the board, said he was “extremely pleased” to announce the promotion. He pointed out that McKenna has served on the interagency fair lending working group, as well as NCUA’s Foreign Branching Committee and Oversight Policy Board for the Office of Financial Insurance Adjudication. Perhaps more prominent to the credit union community, McKenna is the chairman of the Field of Membership Taskforce. He said that for now, he would remain the head of that group. McKenna will assume his new position before the end of the month as he is gradually phased in to the new position and Treichel into his. -
