The National Association of State Credit Union Supervisors (NASCUS) recently appointed Kim Santos, the head of Wisconsin’s Office of Credit Unions (OCU), to the organization’s board of directors.
“Kim is a respected longtime member of NASCUS and the state regulatory community, and she will be a valuable addition to our board,” NASCUS Chairman Mike Wettrich, the deputy superintendent for credit unions in the financial institutions division of Ohio’s Department of Commerce, said.
Santos has served on several of NASCUS’ committees and task forces—she replaces former NASCUS Chairman John Kolhoff, who left the supervisory board to focus on his role as a regulatory official in Michigan.
She has been with Wisconsin OCU, the state’s credit union regulator under the Department of Financial Institutions, for more than 20 years. Before she was named director, she was the deputy director at the OCU.
“We congratulate Kim on her appointment to the NASCUS Board,” NASCUS President and CEO Mary Martha Fortney said. “Obviously, as the regulator with a state system the size of Wisconsin’s, Kim joins the board with a solid understanding of the diverse issues and challenges our system faces today.”
