KCUA's Wright appointed as Kan. CU regulator
TOPEKA, Kan. (7/25/14)--Jerel Wright, assistant vice president of compliance at the Kansas Credit Union Association, was appointed as administrator of the Kansas Department of Credit Unions by Gov. Sam Brownback.
 
As administrator, Wright will be responsible for overseeing the daily functions of the Department of Credit Unions, the Credit Union Council and the laws, regulations and exams for state-chartered credit unions.
 
"I enjoy so much what I do with credit unions right now that I will miss working with them," Wright, 56, told News Now . Wright has been with the Kansas league since 2005 and previously had another 11-year tenure with the league.

Wright also has been appointed state administrator in the past so this gives him "the chance to serve the state of Kansas again," he said. "I've been in credit unions all my career."
 
"Jerel brings a great deal of knowledge and experience to this position," Brownback said in a release. "I appreciate his willingness to serve the people of Kansas in this capacity."
 
Although the state Senate will have to confirm his four-year appointment when it reconvenes in January, Wright will begin working at the department in September. He succeeds John Smith, 76, who has been administrator since 2006.
 
Wright has a bachelor's degree in business administration and a law degree from Washburn University, Topeka, Kan. He earned his credit union compliance expert certification in 2008.
