Georgia Announces New Banking Regulator
ATLANTA (7/9/13)--Kevin Hagler has been appointed commissioner of the Georgia Department of Banking and Finance by Gov. Nathan Deal.
 
The appointment was effective July 1 (Associated Press June 28).
 
"By choosing Kevin Hagler, the governor has chosen someone who has earned respect from all within the credit union system for being a fair regulator," said Mike Mercer, president/CEO of Georgia Credit Union Affiliates. "Kevin has been open to discussion with credit unions and the state trade association and uses a collaborative approach when evaluating state regulatory issues and dealing with credit union issues."
 
Deal replaces Robert Braswell, who is leaving the regulatory agency to become a lobbyist for the banking industry.
 
Hagler has worked as the department's deputy commissioner for supervision since 2008. He is responsible for oversight of state-chartered credit unions and trust companies. He previously worked at Altus Bank in Mobile, Ala., and SunTrust Bank in Atlanta.
