WASHINGTON—The Office of the Comptroller of the Currency (OCC) today announced Kevin Greenfield would become the agency’s Deputy Comptroller for Operational Risk.

In this role, Mr. Greenfield will oversee development of policy and examination procedures addressing operational risk, bank information technology, cybersecurity, critical infrastructure resilience, payments systems, and corporate and risk governance. He will take on these new duties this month.

“Kevin is a top-notch professional with deep experience in understanding and assessing banks’ ability to manage the operational risks they face,” said Comptroller of the Currency Joseph Otting. “The agency and the federal banking system are fortunate to have someone with his background and expertise in this important role.”

Mr. Greenfield previously served as the OCC’s Director for Bank Information Technology for the Operational Risk Division where he managed a team responsible for developing, communicating, and interpreting policies for the OCC’s supervision of technology operations at financial institutions. He represented the OCC on several interagency groups that focus on coordination and development of information technology risk management supervisory guidance for topics such as information security, resiliency, technology operations, corporate governance, and independent risk management.

Prior to being named Director for Bank Information Technology in 2014, Mr. Greenfield spent 14 years with the OCC’s Large Bank Supervision where he examined large and complex technology operations at several of the largest U.S. financial institutions. In this role, he held various technology supervision roles at large financial institutions based in Pittsburgh, Charlotte, and New York City.

Mr. Greenfield is a graduate of the University of Dayton and holds the Certified Information Systems Auditor (CISA) professional certification.

Mr. Greenfield is filling a vacancy created when the previous Deputy Comptroller for Operational Risk Beth Dugan became a Deputy Comptroller for Large Bank Supervision.
