William Haas Named Deputy Comptroller for Midsize Banks
WASHINGTON — William Haas was named the Deputy Comptroller for Midsize Bank Supervision, the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency announced today. He will be based in Chicago and will replace Jennifer Kelly, who will become Senior Deputy Comptroller for Mid-Size and Community Bank Supervision.
"Bill is already an important member of our midsize bank team and this leadership role will allow him to expand his contribution," said Ms. Kelly.
Mr. Haas started his career with the OCC in 1984 in Grand Island, Nebraska and was commissioned as a National Bank Examiner in 1988. In 1994, Mr. Haas transferred to Large Bank Supervision, where he served as the commercial credit lead examiner at Norwest Corporation, and later as a member of the credit team at US Bank.
Mr. Haas assumed his current position as Assistant Deputy Comptroller for Midsize Bank Supervision in March 2003. The Midsize banks had just been reorganized into a single portfolio and he played an integral role in developing the national program as it exists today.
Mr. Haas graduated in 1984 from Hastings College, Hastings, Nebraska, with a degree in business administration.
