WASHINGTON — The National Credit Union Administration has selected a former examiner to serve as the agency's next executive director, Chairman Debbie Matz announced Thursday.

Mark Treichel, who serves as the director for the NCUA's regional office in Albany, will succeed David Marquis when he retires at the end of 2012. Treichel will officially assume the new role on Dec. 30.

"Having risen from the ranks of an examiner, Mark has developed expert knowledge of NCUA's operations and a broad base of experience," Matz said in a press release. "Mark's consistently calm, steady and resilient manner also contributes to his effective management style. He's a true leader and the right person to take over as NCUA's next executive director."

Treichel has served as director of the Region I office in Albany since 2003, overseeing federally insured credit unions in New York, Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Vermont, Rhode Island, Michigan and Nevada.

He joined the NCUA as an examiner in Minneapolis in 1986. He previously served as deputy executive director from 2000 to 2003.
