Chau Do has been named deputy comptroller for the risk analysis division of the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency (OCC), the agency said in a release Wednesday. Do assumed her new duties Dec. 23, it said.
In this post, Do will oversee the four risk analysis divisions housed in the agency’s economics department. Those divisions provide expertise to the agency on quantitative modeling of credit risk, market risk, compliance risk, and enterprise-wide risk, the OCC said. Do also will serve as a key advisor and technical expert on practical and policy issues related to the use of quantitative models by banks and the oversight of banks’ risk models by supervisors, the agency said.
Do previously served as OCC’s director in the compliance risk analysis division. She joined the OCC in 2004 and previously was an economist at the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). She holds a doctorate in economics from the University of California, Santa Barbara.
The OCC says Do fills the position vacated by Michael Sullivan, who was promoted to senior deputy comptroller for economics in June 2017.
