NAFCU promotes Dan O’Brien to Director of Political Affairs

WASHINGTON, DC (March 16, 2015) — The National Association of Federal Credit Unions (NAFCU) has promoted Dan O’Brien to director of political affairs.

“Dan has demonstrated exceptional political insight in advancing NAFCU’s grassroots and coalition-building efforts on Capitol Hill,” said NAFCU Senior Vice President of Government Affairs and General Counsel Carrie Hunt. “His acumen will be invaluable to NAFCU, particularly as we prepare for the Congressional Caucus in September.”

In his new position, O’Brien will oversee NAFCU/PAC, organize NAFCU’s grassroots efforts and manage NAFCU’s political strategy. He will also continue his involvement with NAFCU’s lobbying efforts on Capitol Hill.

O’Brien replaces Katherine Marisic, who recently left NAFCU to serve as federal affairs manager for the Brewers Association.

O’Brien joined NAFCU in September 2011 as associate director of political affairs. Before that, he was the mid-Atlantic finance director for the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee and PAC and political representative at the National Air Traffic Controllers Association. O’Brien holds a bachelor’s degree in politics and government from Ohio Wesleyan University.

The National Association of Federal Credit Unions is the only national trade association that exclusively represents the interests of federally chartered credit unions before the federal government and the public.
