NEW D.C. FCU PresidentCEO nominated to NCUA board
WASHINGTON (UPDATED: 10:15 A.M. ET)--President Barack Obama has announced his intent to nominate D.C. Federal Credit Union President/CEO Carla León-Decker to become a member of the National Credit Union Administration (NCUA) board. Gigi Hyland, whose six-year term on the NCUA board technically ended in August, congratulated León-Decker, saying the credit union executive “has extensive knowledge of the credit union system” and will “bring her acumen to the regulatory realm.” NCUA Chairman Debbie Matz said León-Decker “will bring valuable perspectives to the NCUA Board—particularly her inspiring commitment to providing affordable financial services for recent immigrants, low-income families, and many people of modest means.” León-Decker served as Operations Manager and, later, as president/CEO PAHO/WHO FCU between 1994 to 2000, and also served as branch manager of Transportation FCU between 1988 and 1994. She is also a credit union development educator and director of the Network of Latino Credit Unions & Professionals. Her nomination is subject to congressional approval.
