NCUA Chairman Todd Harper announced the appointment of Elizabeth Eurgubian as director of external affairs and communications and policy advisor, effective Monday.
“Elizabeth is a well-known expert on financial services regulatory policy and compliance,” said Harper. “She not only knows the industry well, but she also understands how policies affect credit unions and their members. Plus, she communicates those issues in effective, clear, and logical ways. So, I am confident Elizabeth will hit the ground running in support of the agency’s strategic goals and priorities of ensuring the safety and soundness of the credit union system and protecting credit union members.”
Eurgubian will lead the agency’s communication and congressional affairs initiatives and serve as a policy advisor to the Chairman.
“I am honored to join the NCUA and the team of dedicated people that serve the credit union industry and its members,” said Eurgubian. “The work of the NCUA is critical to ensuring that credit unions meet the financial needs of the millions of Americans that rely on them in the most effective way possible. I look forward to working with Chairman Harper and the NCUA Board on this important mission.”
Eurgubian was the deputy chief advocacy officer and senior counsel for regulatory and executive branch relations at CUNA prior to joining NCUA, and has also served as senior vice president and senior regulatory counsel at the Independent Community Bankers of America; assistant general counsel for Sallie Mae; and as an attorney for the Federal Reserve Board of Governors.
