Jones Joins NCUA as Chief Financial Officer
ALEXANDRIA, Va. (Oct. 17, 2014) – National Credit Union Administration Board Chairman Debbie Matz today announced the selection of Rendell Jones as the agency’s Chief Financial Officer.
Jones succeeds MaryAnn Woodson, who is retiring in November after 35 years of public service. Jones will begin his duties effective Oct. 20. The Chief Financial Officer’s responsibilities include preparation and management of the agency’s budget, finance and accounting functions; administration of credit union operating fees and capitalization deposits; and daily operations of the National Credit Union Share Insurance Fund.
“I am pleased to welcome Rendell to NCUA and look forward to working with him,” Matz said. “The breadth of his experience and the overall excellence he has displayed in his career should serve NCUA and credit unions very well.
“I also want to thank MaryAnn Woodson for her service to the agency and to credit unions. She was part of the management team through the most difficult period in the system’s history, a challenging time for the agency, and her judgment and management skills have been important to all of us as we steered through the storm.”
Woodson has served as NCUA’s Chief Financial Officer since January 2008, and her federal service career began in 1979.
Jones joins NCUA from U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, where he was Associate Director for Management and served as the Agency’s Acting Deputy Director from December 2013 to July 2014. Prior to that appointment, Jones served as USCIS’s Chief Financial Officer. He previously served as Deputy Budget Director at the Department of Homeland Security. His career in federal service began in 1996 at the Department of Justice.
Jones holds a Master of Public Administration degree from North Carolina State University and a Bachelor of Science degree in finance from Virginia Commonwealth University. He has received the Presidential Rank Medal for Meritorious Service and the Secretary’s Silver Medal for his service at the Department of Homeland Security.

Insurance Fund, insuring the deposits of account holders in all federal credit unions and the overwhelming majority of
