Rodney Hood Re-nominated to NCUA Board

President Donald Trump Wednesday nominated former NCUA board member Rodney Hood to fill the board seat currently held by board member Rick Metsger. Hood was nominated in the last Congress but not confirmed, and previously served as vice chair of the NCUA board under President George W. Bush.

“CUNA and the Leagues congratulate Rodney Hood on his re-nomination by President Trump to the NCUA Board,” said CUNA Chief Advocacy Officer Ryan Donovan. “We look forward to working with Mr. Hood once again. He was approachable to stakeholders and demonstrated a thorough understanding of credit unions and the importance of commonsense regulation in his previous terms on the board.”

Hood was appointed vice chairman of NCUA in 2005 by Bush and served on the board from October 2005 to August 2010. His nomination is for a term ending in August 2023. His confirmation would still leave a vacancy on the board, the seat held by former board Chair Debbie Matz. That seat must be filled by a Democrat and Hood’s nomination might not receive Senate consideration until paired with a nominee from the other side of the aisle.

Hood currently serves as corporate responsibility manager at JPMorgan Chase, where he manages national partnerships with organizations that foster sustainable homeownership, provide financial capability and economic inclusion and provide access to capital in underserved communities, including low-to-moderate income, minority and disabled.
