Hauptman confirmed by Senate for NCUA board


Kyle Hauptman was confirmed by the Senate Wednesday for a seat on the NCUA board. Hauptman will serve a term through August 2025 once sworn in. CUNA President/CEO Jim Nussle sent a letter to Hauptman outlining CUNA-League priorities Wednesday afternoon.

“CUNA, Leagues, and credit unions congratulate Kyle Hauptman for his confirmation as an NCUA board member. With his record of engagement with Leagues and credit unions, we look forward to working with him on ways NCUA can help credit unions more efficiently serve members through the duration of the pandemic and through the economic recovery,” Nussle said. “We hope he will continue NCUA’s trend in recent years as an efficient, effective regulator.”

Hauptman, a native of Maine, currently serves as an economic advisor to Sen. Tom Cotton (R-Ark.). In his testimony before the Senate Banking Committee July 21, he said his goal at NCUA will be to help credit unions offer the American dream to as many people as possible.
