Five national bank examiners receive highest honor

Five examination professionals are now “senior national bank examiners” (SNBEs), the highest honor bestowed to national bank overseers, the federal regulator said Wednesday.

In a release, the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency (OCC) said Stephanie Boccio, Angela Lindstrom, James Reid, Andrea Vourvoulias, and Marc Wacker are all now designated as SNBEs, the agency said. The honor was bestowed on them, the OCC said, in recognition of their high-quality performance and service as field examiners, subject matter expertise, and advice to regulator institutions on “highly complex and technical bank supervision issues.”

“Their commitment to the OCC’s mission to ensure a safe, sound and fair banking system is singular and representative of the best this agency has to offer,” said Acting Comptroller Michael Hsu. “I am proud to work with them and offer my congratulations on this well-deserved honor.”

All five are veterans of the agency, having served 33 or more years each at the OCC.
