j mark mcwatters credit union championWith just a year and a half under his belt as an NCUA board member, J. Mark McWatters has used his voice on the board to champion credit unions – something that has often resulted in praise from the very group he regulates.

McWatters was nominated to the board by President Obama in January 2014 and confirmed in June of that year. He took office as the latest NCUA board member on Aug. 26, 2014, despite being new to the credit union industry.

He is licensed to practice law in Texas, where he earned a J.D. degree from the University of Texas at Austin School of Law; and in New York, where he received an LL.M. degree from both Columbia University School of Law and New York University School of Law. Additionally, he is a Certified Public Accountant in Texas.
