Former CUNA Execs To Join Federal Regulator
The best-known secret is about to become public this week when CUNA's top two lobbyists, John McKechnie and Gary Kohn, join NCUA. The two now-former lobbyists were cleared by the White House last week and will join the federal regulator this week.
McKechnie, CUNA's chief lobbyist, will take over as congressional liaison for NCUA Chiarman JoAnn Johnson, succeeding the departing Cliff Northup. And Kohn will become new NCUA Board member Gigi Hyland's chief of staff/executive assistant.
