Ending an eight-month role as “acting” top supervisor for the federal credit union regulator, Myra Toeppe has formally been named the director of the agency’s office of examination and insurance, according to a release issued Monday

Since March, Toeppe has been serving as acting director of the National Credit Union Administration’s (NCUA) examination and insurance office.

The release said the NCUA Board unanimously approved Toeppe’s selection as permanent director.

Prior to her role as acting director, she served nine years in executive positions with the NCUA, including as associate regional director, regional director, and strategic advisor, the NCUA said. Before that, the agency said, she served 25 years with the Office of Thrift Supervision and the Federal Home Loan Bank of Atlanta.

Toeppe holds a B.S.B.A. and M.B.A. from the University of Central Florida. She is a 2011 graduate of the Stonier Graduate School of Banking and its Wharton Leadership Program; she has completed the Leadership for a Democratic Society Program at the Federal Executive Institute.
