In 1999, he was promoted to systems accountant in the Office of the Chief Financial Officer at NCUA’s Alexandria, Va. headquarters. Two years later he became a budget analyst and in July 2003, McNeill was appointed deputy financial officer/director of the Division of Financial Control. He has received several awards and honors throughout his career.

The ombudsman assists in resolving problems relating to regulatory issues that cannot be resolved at the operational (regional) level by helping the complainant define options and recommending actions to the parties involved. The ombudsman cannot at any time decide on matters in dispute or advocate position of the complainant, NCUA or other parties.
