TCULs Gill hired as NCUA strategic advisor
ALEXANDRIA, Va. (6/14/11)--On July 5, after serving seven years as the chief advocacy officer and senior vice president of the Texas Credit Union League (TCUL), James H. “Buddy” Gill, III, will become the National Credit Union Administration’s (NCUA) new senior strategic communications and external relations advisor. In announcing Gill’s addition to her staff, NCUA Chairman Debbie Matz noted Gill’s nearly fifteen years’ experience working directly with credit unions of “all sizes, industry trade groups, federal and state lawmakers, policymakers, the media, and other industry stakeholders” on credit union issues. “His keen strategic sense, communication abilities, and credit union legislative successes are well known and respected nationally. Buddy can hit the ground running at NCUA,” the chairman said. In his new post, Gill will work closely with the chairman and the NCUA’s Public and Congressional Affairs team. Also, Matz said Gill will serve as a liaison between the agency and the credit union industry, as well as related stakeholders, on issues such as how regulations are working at the credit union level, and how the NCUA can better help credit unions serve their members. Credit Union National Association (CUNA) Deputy General Counsel Mary Dunn said CUNA looks forward to working with Gill when he joins the agency in July. She said the new liaison position between the agency and stakeholders, through which the NCUA could gain more insight about regulatory burden, could be valuable to credit unions.
