FDIC names Gentry as deputy to chairman, CFO

E. Marshall Gentry has been appointed deputy to the board chairman and the chief financial officer (CFO) for the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp. (FDIC), the agency announced.

In a release Monday, the FDIC said Gentry succeeds Bret D. Edwards, who retired in February.

The FDIC said Gentry has been serving as the agency’s chief risk officer and director of the Office of Risk Management and Internal Controls (ORMIC) since April 2018. Prior to joining ORMIC, Gentry worked at the FDIC’s Office of Inspector General, most recently as the assistant inspector general for program audits and evaluations, where he managed a portfolio of audit and evaluation assignments that covered all aspects of the FDIC. (ORMIC, the agency said, handles the agency’s enterprise risk management program, internal controls program, coordinating inspector general and General Accountability Office [GAO] audits, among other things.)

Gentry began his professional career in 1987 as an evaluator with the GAO in Atlanta, the FDIC said. It said he holds a Bachelor of Science degree in internal auditing from Berry College in Rome, Ga., and is a certified public accountant.
