WASHINGTON — Morris Morgan, a longtime veteran of the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency, will become its next senior deputy comptroller for large-bank supervision, the agency said Tuesday.

With his new role, which he will assume on Dec. 24, Morris will head a department of more than 700 OCC employees. He will also join the OCC's Executive Committee and the Committee on Bank Supervision and head the International Bank Supervision group and London office.

"We are fortunate to be able to turn to a career examiner to fill this important role," Comptroller of the Currency Thomas J. Curry said in a statement. "Morris has proved his mettle over more than 30 years in the field and at headquarters in a variety of bank supervision roles.

During a career spanning more than three decades at the OCC, Morris has served as a top examiner for banks including Bank of America and PNC. He has also served as deputy comptroller for large-bank supervision. He has been a commissioned bank examiner since 1989.

Morris will succeed Marty Pfinsgraff, who is retiring.
