Two more listed for Trump ‘landing team’ at NCUA
Jan. 9, 2017 -- Two additional names have been added to the “landing team” at NCUA for the incoming Trump Administration, which includes a former top staffer at the agency.
Peter Barrett, a former senior policy advisor and chief of staff to former NCUA Chairman JoAnn Johnson, and Chelsea Pizzola, who most recently worked as a research fellow for the Committee on Capital Markets Regulation, are listed as "landing team" members for the credit union agency. The two join former NCUA Board Chairman (and member) Michael Fryzel as those named to the team.
Barrett is currently president of Barrett Capitol Strategies; prior to that, he served as director of federal affairs for the National Association of State Treasurers. His Capitol Hill experience includes service as senior counsel to the majority staff of the House Financial Services Committee from 2003 through 2007. Prior to that, he was counsel and judicial assistant to Chief Judge Thomas F. Hogan in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia. His service to NCUA spanned January 2007 to September 2008. Johnson is now the Superintendent of the Iowa Division of Credit Unions.
Prior to Pizzola’s service at the Committee on Capital Markets Regulation (a private organization that “develops and seeks to implement legislative and regulatory reforms that would strengthen the resiliency of the financial system, reduce the cost of raising capital for non-financial companies and provide investors with increased opportunities to earn a return on their savings”) she was a law clerk for the office of Commissioner J. Christopher Giancarlo, U.S. Commodity Futures Trading Commission.
