People on the Move: Morris Morgan, OCC
The U.S. Office of the Comptroller of the Currency (OCC) has named Morris Morgan as the agency’s senior deputy comptroller for large bank supervision. In the role, Morgan will direct more than 700 OCC staffers who supervise the U.S.’s largest national banks and federal branches and agencies. He also will serve as a member of the OCC’s executive committee and the committee on bank supervision, and will oversee the agency’s international banking supervision group and the OCC’s U.K. office in London. Morgan will assume the role on Dec. 24, 2016, and will succeed Marty Pfinsgraff, who is stepping down to begin leave in advance of his retirement from the OCC in February.
Since joining the OCC in 1985, Morgan has held a variety of leadership roles, including examiner-in-charge of Bank of America and PNC, as well as deputy comptroller for large bank supervision.
