NCUA Chairman Debbie Matz last week announced the ­selection of James Hagen as the agency’s next inspector general. Hagen, the current deputy inspector general for audit, will assume his new post June 1. He will ­succeed William DeSarno, who is retiring.

“Jim Hagen is a dedicated and well-qualified public servant who will assume a very important role at NCUA,” Matz said. “The ­inspector general not only holds the ­agency accountable, but this office regularly identifies ways to ­improve how the agency does its work. Jim’s deep knowledge of financial services issues, ­background as an inspector ­general and familiarity with NCUA’s operations make him ideally ­suited for this new role.”
