President Donald Trump nominated Rodney Hood to National Credit Union Administration board, replacing Democrat Rick Metsger. Metsger’s term technically expired last August.
In response to the announcement, Credit Union National Association Chief Advocacy Officer Ryan Donovan said, “CUNA and the Leagues congratulate Rodney Hood on his nomination by President Trump to the NCUA Board,” said CUNA Chief Advocacy Officer Ryan Donovan. “We look forward to working with Mr. Hood once again to improve the efficiency, safety and soundness for credit unions. During his previous tenure on the Board, Mr. Hood was approachable to stakeholders and demonstrated a thorough understanding of credit unions and the importance of commonsense regulation.”
Hood is a former member and vice chairman of the NCUA board, who now serves as a corporate responsibility manager for JPMorgan Chase, where he manages national partnerships with groups that work on community development, civil rights and with the disabled community.
