ALEXANDRIA, Va. (4/19/12)--Credit union veteran Martha Ninichuk will take on the role of deputy director of the National Credit Union Administration's (NCUA) Office of Small Credit Union Initiative (OSCUI) on Sunday, the agency has announced.
Ninichuk most recently served as the Michigan Credit Union League's director of cooperative initiatives, and has also worked with the Maryland and D.C. Credit Union Association.
Her work has focused on helping credit unions provide innovative financial products and services to underserved and low-income populations, addressing governance issues, and developing financial products, the NCUA noted.
She also led Warren, Michigan-based St. Cletus CU.
NCUA Chairman Debbie Matz said Ninichuk's "mix of small credit union management and broad credit union field work is ideal for this hands-on position" and added that her "wide range of experiences, from running a small credit union in Michigan, to consulting for two state leagues, to international credit union development projects, will also bring fresh perspectives to OSCUI's work."
