The National Credit Union Administration recently announced the selection of Gerard Poliquin to succeed Mary Rupp as the board secretary following her retirement.
Rupp retired after 27 years with the agency, the last nine of which she never missed a board meeting. She began her career in the NCUA’s Office of General Counsel, working in regulation and litigation. She also served as a senior policy advisor to former board member JoAnn Johnson.
“Mary Rupp has been an outstanding Board Secretary, performing all her duties and responsibilities in a professional manner,” NCUA board member Michael E. Fryzel said. “I have very much enjoyed working with her the last five years. The Board is fortunate to have her replacement be an equally capable and dedicated individual. Jerry Poliquin brings a strong legal and technical background to the position, and I look forward to working with him.”
Poliquin joined the NCUA in 1996, before which time he served as an enforcement attorney at the Office of Thrift Supervision. He holds a master of laws degree from Boston University and juris doctorate from Seattle University.
“We’re pleased to welcome Jerry to this position,” NCUA Chairman Debbie Matz said. “He brings a solid background in the agency, and I’m confident he will continue the excellent work we’ve come to expect from those who serve as Board Secretary.”
