The Federal Deposit Insurance Corp. has appointed a new director for its Office of Minority and Women Inclusion.

Segundo Pereira, a retired Air Force colonel, will oversee the diversity office. He most recently served as a director of operations for the Medicare appeals office at the Department of Health and Human Services. He also held senior-level diversity management positions at HHS.

He takes over for acting director Melodee Brooks. The office's previous director, Michael "Mickey" Collins, retired on Aug. 3, 2013 after holding the post for 14 years.

Separately, the FDIC said on Wednesday that that Andrew Gray, an agency spokesman, is leaving to join JPMorgan Chase.

Gray joined the FDIC in April 2007 as director of public affairs. Before that, he was a communications director for the Senate Banking Committee. He also worked on the press staff for Sen. Richard Shelby, R-Ala., the former committee chairman.

Gray will be a managing director and senior communications officer at JPMorgan. His last day at the FDIC will be Sep. 12.
