WASHINGTON (10/20/14)--Rendell Jones has been named the new chief financial officer of the National Credit Union Administration, the agency announced Friday. Jones, who begins his duties today, is replacing MaryAnn Woodson, who served as CFO since January 2008.
"I am pleased to welcome Rendell to NCUA and look forward to working with him," said NCUA Chair Debbie Matz. "The breadth of his experience and the overall excellence he has displayed in his career should serve NCUA and credit unions very well."
The chief financial officer's responsibilities include preparation and management of the agency's budget, finance and accounting functions; administration of credit union operating fees and capitalization deposits; and daily operations of the National Credit Union Share Insurance Fund.
Jones is coming from his position as associate director for management with the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS). He also served as that agency's acting deputy director from December 2013 to July 2014. Prior to that appointment, Jones served as USCIS's chief financial officer.
He previously served as deputy budget director at the Department of Homeland Security. His career in federal service began in 1996 at the Department of Justice.
Matz credited Woodson for being an integral part of the management team that went through "the most difficult period in the system's history, a challenging time for the agency, and her judgment and management skills have been important to all of us as we steered through the storm."
