Two at OCC promoted, added to executive committee

The nation’s bank charterer on Monday named two individuals to senior deputy comptroller positions for midsize and community bank supervision and large bank supervision, completing staffing for two slots vacated due to another promotion and one retirement.

The Office of the Comptroller of the Currency (OCC) said that Sydney Menefee has been selected to fill the senior deputy comptroller for midsize and community bank supervision post on a permanent basis and that Greg Coleman will become the next senior deputy comptroller for large bank supervision. Both were named to the OCC’s executive committee and will also serve on the agency’s bank supervision committee.

Menefee has held the senior post in “acting” capacity since June 2020, replacing Blake Paulson, who became chief operating officer earlier this year. Before holding the senior deputy comptroller post, Menefee had served as deputy comptroller and chief accountant since August 2018. She joined the OCC in 2009. She graduated from the University of Texas at Austin with a bachelor’s degree in business administration and a master’s degree in professional accounting. She is also a certified public accountant.

Coleman, with the OCC since 1989, has been deputy comptroller for large bank supervision since 2015. He has also served as examiner-in-charge of Capital One and E*TRADE; and as director within the credit and market risk division and as the lead for the capital markets team at JPMorgan Chase. He holds a bachelor of science degree in business administration from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. He will transition into his new duties at the end of this year, replacing Maryann Kennedy, who is retiring.
