WASHINGTON The Office of the Comptroller of the Currency on Friday named Kevin Walsh as its deputy comptroller for market risk.
Walsh's new duties will include monitoring activities such as trading, derivatives, and liquidity and asset management. He will succeed Martin Pfinsgraff, who last year was named senior deputy comptroller for large bank supervision.
In his new role, Walsh will serve as co-chair of the OCC's national risk committee.
"Kevin brings more than 25 years of capital markets and banking experience to his new responsibilities, and the OCC is fortunate to have him assume this important leadership position," John Lyons, senior deputy comptroller for bank supervision policy, said in a press release.
Walsh is currently the group leader for the chief national bank examiner's financial market risk unit at the OCC. He started with the agency in 2012 as a capital markets examiner in large bank supervision.
Before joining the OCC, Walsh was the managing director for Merchant Data Repository, a startup company that supports trade reporting, collateral management and clearing derivatives.
