ARLINGTON, Va. (6/9/14)--The National Association of State Credit Union Supervisors (NASCUS) appointed Kim Santos, director of the Office of Credit Unions at the Wisconsin Department of Financial Institutions, to its board.
Santos was selected to fill a vacancy created by last week's departure of John Kolhoff, director of the Office of Credit Unions of the Michigan Department of Insurance and Financial Services. Kolhoff had been chair of the association for state agencies that charter, regulate and examine state-chartered credit unions.
Santos, who has been with the Wisconsin office for more than 20 years, also has served on a number of NASCUS committees and task forces.
"Kim is a respected longtime member of NASCUS and the state regulatory community, and she will be a valuable addition to our board," said NASCUS Chair Mike Wettrich, deputy superintendent for credit unions in the Division of Financial Institutions of Ohio's Department of Commerce.
"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," said NASCUS President/CEO Mary Martha Fortney.
