NCUA Board Chairman Metsger Names Radway Chief of Staff
ALEXANDRIA, Va. (May 4, 2016) – National Credit Union Administration Board Chairman Rick Metsger has named Michael Radway to be his Chief of Staff.
Radway has served as Metsger’s Senior Policy Advisor since November 2013.
“Mike Radway’s extensive background in financial issues, combined with his intelligence and judgment, have made him a valuable advisor,” Metsger said. “As Chief of Staff, he’ll serve the credit union system very well. It would be difficult to find someone with a greater breadth of experience in legislation, policy, strategic planning and outreach. I have greatly appreciated his service, and I look forward to working with him as we address the challenges ahead.”
A credit union member since his days in college, Radway served as professional staff to the U.S. House of Representatives Committee on Banking and Financial Services and its members from 1977 to 1999 and played a key role in the passage of the Credit Union Membership Access Act of 1998.
Radway also served as chairman and public interest director for the Federal Home Loan Bank of Seattle during the Clinton and Bush administrations and as chairman of the Council of Federal Home Loan Banks.
He has also served as president of the Early Care and Education Consortium, a national alliance of early education providers.
Radway holds a bachelor’s degree in political science from Yale University.
