ALEXANDRIA, Va. (11/4/13)--Michael Radway will serve as senior policy advisor to National Credit Union Administration board member Richard Metsger, starting in January.
"Michael comes to us with an impressive legislative and policy background, and a deep knowledge of the credit union model," Metsger said. "His commitment to public service includes work in finance, affordable housing, community development and education. He has the kind of broad experience in policy development, legislation, strategic planning and outreach that makes him an excellent fit for the role of Senior Policy Advisor. I am looking forward to working with him, and I am sure that NCUA will benefit from his energy and judgment."
Radway, who holds a political science degree from Yale University and has been a member of a credit union since college, currently serves as senior director, government relations, for early education and after-school education provider Knowledge Universe.
The incoming NCUA staff member has served as professional staff for the House Financial Services Committee and played a key role in the passage of the Credit Union Membership Access Act in 1998, the NCUA said. He has also served as:
- Chairman and public interest director for the Federal Home Loan Bank of Seattle;
- Chairman of the Council of Federal Home Loan Banks; and
- President of the Early Care and Education Consortium, a national alliance of early education providers.
Credit Union National Association Deputy General Counsel Mary Dunn said Radway has an outstanding background, and noted that CUNA staff worked well with him during his time on the financial services committee. "We look forward to catching up and discussing credit union issues and concerns with him," she added.
