As of Monday, Maryann Kennedy is the senior deputy comptroller for large bank supervision at the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency (OCC), the agency announced in a release.
Kennedy, formerly the agency’s deputy comptroller in this area, succeeds Morris Morgan in the senior post. Morgan became the agency’s chief operating officer in January, OCC said.
In her new role, Kennedy will direct nearly 800 men and women who supervise the country’s largest national banks and federal branches and agencies, which hold more than $10 trillion in total consolidated assets, the agency said. She will also serve as a member of the agency’s executive committee.
Kennedy had been serving as deputy comptroller for large bank supervision since June 2015, overseeing the examination teams of a portfolio of large banks. She previously served as examiner-in-charge for JPMorgan Chase and TD Bank. She joined the OCC in 1991 in the Philadelphia field office after eight years in the banking industry and was commissioned a national bank examiner in 1997. As a field examiner, she worked in community, midsize, and large banks and has held a variety of management roles, including assistant deputy comptroller for the Wilkes-Barre and the Washington, D.C., field offices.
She is a graduate of Ohio State University, the agency said.
