Agency names new leader for credit union liquidity lending facility

Anthony Cappetta is the new president of the government-sponsored lending facility for credit unions experiencing unusual or unexpected liquidity shortfalls, the federal credit union regulator said Wednesday. His appointment is effective Monday (Jan. 30).

Before joining the NCUA, the agency said, he served in leadership roles at several hedge funds and banks.

Cappetta holds an M.B.A. in Finance and Corporate Accounting from the William E. Simon Graduate School of Business Administration at the University of Rochester, an M.S.E in the Management of Technology from the University of Pennsylvania’s Wharton School and School of Engineering and Applied Science, an M.S. in Aerospace Engineering from Pennsylvania State University, and a B.S. in Aerospace Engineering from Polytechnic Institute of New York University.
