The OCC has announced that Comptroller of the Currency Joseph Otting will step down on May 29, 2020 and Brian Brooks will become Acting Comptroller.

Brian currently serves as the OCC’s Chief Operating Officer and First Deputy Comptroller.  Before joining the OCC, Brian had a distinguished career in private legal practice and working in-house in the financial services industry.  Having known Brian for many years, I believe his wide-ranging experience makes him extremely well-qualified to serve in the important role of Acting Comptroller.
