ARLINGTON, Va.-Dan Berger, vice president of government relations for America’s Community Bankers, will serve in the top lobbying spot at NAFCU, the group announced last week. Berger, who will start as NAFCU’s new senior vice president of government affairs Feb. 1, replaces 26-year NAFCU veteran Bill Donovan who left to become a partner at the Washington, D.C. law firm Venable, LLP. Before joining ACB, Berger served as chief of staff to Congresswoman Katherine Harris (R-Fla.) and ran her first successful congressional campaign. He has more than 15 years of experience in government relations and political campaigns. “We are delighted to have someone of Dan’s caliber working for America’s credit unions,” NAFCU President and CEO Fred Becker said. “Dan meets our every selection criteria-and then some. With the bankers stepping up their attacks on credit unions, Dan’s political and strategic experience will prove invaluable as the new session of Congress begins.” “NAFCU and credit unions have enjoyed tremendous respect on Capitol Hill over the years, and I very much look forward to working with Fred and the NAFCU staff to take the association to the next level,” Berger said. “I know from personal experience that credit unions serve an important role in our society and have a great story to tell.” Berger has a master’s degree in public administration from Harvard University and a bachelor’s degree in economics from Florida State University. He currently resides in Alexandria, Va. with his wife and daughter. NAFCU retained Korn/Ferry International to perform the search.
