ALEXANDRIA, Va. (7/29/13)--Gerard Poliquin is the new secretary of the National Credit Union Administration board. He fills the spot vacated recently when Mary Rupp retired after 27 years at the agency.
NCUA Chair Debbie Matz said Poliquin brings a solid NCUA background to the job, having joined the agency in 1996. Most recently he has served as a senior trial attorney. Before moving to the NCUA, Poliquin served as an enforcement attorney at the Office of Thrift Supervision.
NCUA board member Fryzel said in addition to a strong legal background, Poliquin has a technical background as well.
Matz and Fryzel each also praised Rupp, citing her long service and commitment. They noted that for the last nine years as board secretary, she never missed a board meeting.
