WASHINGTON — The Federal Deposit Insurance Corp. announced three senior staff appointments this week, including a new examination chief and a top liaison to Congress.

The FDIC tapped Doreen R. Eberley, a 25-year veteran of the agency, as the senior deputy director for supervisory examinations. In that role, she will oversee all exam activities and the FDIC's regional and field supervisory operations.

Eberley currently serves as New York Regional Director, a position she has held since January 2007.

The agency also announced it had re-hired Eric Spitler as director of its office of legislative affairs. Spitler was in that position from October 2006 to August 2009 before transferring to the Securities and Exchange Commission to run its legislative affairs team.

Spitler will succeed Alice Goodman, currently the acting director of the legislative affairs office, who announced she will retire at the end of the year after 24 years of service.

The FDIC also promoted Andrew Gray to deputy to the chairman for communications. Gray was the director of the FDIC's office of public affairs , which is now being reorganized into the agency's office of communications. Gray will be responsible for management and coordination of both internal and external communications at the FDIC.

Gray joined the FDIC in April 2007 and previously served as the communications director for the Senate Banking Committee.
