Kathy Dick Named Deputy Comptroller for Risk Evaluation
WASHINGTON — The Office of the Comptroller of the Currency announced today that Kathryn (Kathy) E. Dick has been appointed Deputy Comptroller for Risk Evaluation. Ms. Dick will serve as the Comptroller's principal advisor on systemic risks facing the national banking system and will chair the OCC's National Risk Committee, which coordinates the agency's risk identification practices and will report to Wayne Rushton, Senior Deputy Comptroller and Chief National Bank Examiner.
"Kathy brings to her new position a wealth of examination and policy experience that cuts across our lines of business," said Mr. Rushton. "She will keep the OCC in the forefront of identifying new areas of emerging risk and assist in the development of timely supervisory policies to address those risks."
Ms. Dick, an 18-year OCC veteran and a CFA charterholder, has served as Director of Treasury and Market Risk since her appointment in 1998. Her previous OCC assignments include serving as a capital market expert in various field assignments, including the Midwestern District Office, and as Examiner-in-Charge of the OCC's London office.
She holds a B.A. from the University of Minnesota and was awarded an M.B.A. from the University of Minnesota's Carlson School of Management. Ms. Dick succeeds Michael L. Brosnan who was recently named Examiner-in-Charge for Bank of America, N.A.
