NEW Hill-veteran Harper is new PACA director at NCUA
Arlington, Va. (UPDATE 2/8/11, 9:45 a.m. ET)--Todd Harper, a 14-year veteran of Capitol Hill as senior aide to former Rep. Paul Kanjorski (D-Pa.) and as staff director for the House Financial Services subcommittee on capital markets, insurance and government-sponsored enterprises, is the new director of Public and Congressional Affairs (PACA) at the National Credit Union Administration (NCUA). Harper will assume his duties at NCUA on Feb. 14. In addition to becoming PACA director, Harper will also serve as chief policy advisor to the NCUA Chairman Debbie Matz. He replaces outgoing PACA Director John McKechnie, who will leave NCUA in early March to pursue a private sector opportunity. “I am very pleased that Todd is joining our team,” Matz said in her announcement. “His knowledge, experience and demonstrated capabilities as a legislative practitioner are well established and have placed him in the front-rank of Washington policy professionals. I am confident that Todd Harper will be of immediate benefit to NCUA; he knows and understands credit unions, and he knows and understands the issues that affect them.” Read more in tomorrow’s News Now.
