Rodney Hood nominated for return to NCUA Board

June 18, 2018 -- President Donald Trump has nominated Rodney Hood to serve on the NCUA Board.

Hood, who previously served on the NCUA board from 2005-2010 as a member and vice chairman, is being nominated to fill a six-year term that will expire in 2023. Rick Metsger, who’s term technically expired last August, now occupies the seat.

Hood currently serves as a corporate responsibility manager for JPMorgan Chase, where he manages national partnerships with groups that work on community development, civil rights and with the disabled community. He also served as the associate administrator at the Department of Agriculture.

“NASCUS looks forward to resuming a productive working relationship with Rodney Hood,” said NASCUS President and CEO Lucy Ito. “If confirmed, we are confident that Mr. Hood will work with NCUA Board Chairman McWatters to ensure the credit union system remains safe, sound and competitive in the broader market. Mr. Hood’s return to the NCUA Board would bring a unique combination of insights from both his banking sector experience at JP Morgan Chase & his rural housing background at USDA.” 

Hood would join Chairman McWatters as the only two members of the three-person panel. The other seat, previously occupied by Chairman Debbie Matz, remains vacant.
