Hood Thanks Roget for Her Leadership During His Tenure
ALEXANDRIA, Va. (Jan. 19, 2021) – National Credit Union Administration Chairman Rodney E. Hood issued the following statement thanking Gisele Roget, the NCUA’s Deputy Chief of Staff, for her leadership during his tenure.
Roget has served in her Deputy Chief of Staff role since joining the agency in 2019, where she advised Chairman Hood on policy, communications, and congressional engagement. She is the first Black woman to hold this role for a prudential regulator.
Throughout Chairman Hood’s historic tenure as the first Black American to lead a banking regulatory agency, the NCUA provided significant regulatory relief, effectively responded to the COVID-19 crisis, steadfastly promoted diversity, equity and financial inclusion, and provided vital support to small businesses and communities across the nation.
“Gisele joined my office at a critical moment for the agency, and she has been a keystone member of my leadership team,” said Chairman Hood. “From the historic regulatory reform agenda, the changes in rulemaking and statute to address challenges brought forth by the COVID-19 pandemic and the agency’s landmark financial inclusion initiative, ACCESS, Gisele has been essential to every one of the agency’s many achievements.”
Prior to joining the NCUA in 2019, Roget held senior roles in the private and public sectors, including positions at MetLife, Inc., and the Federal Housing Administration. She also spent nearly a decade advising senior members of the House Financial Services Committee on housing policy, financial stability regulation, and congressional oversight.
Roget holds a bachelor’s degree from Yale University.
