President Trump on Monday announced his intention to nominate Kyle Hauptman to be a member of the National Credit Union Administration board.
If confirmed by the Senate, Hauptman would replace Republican Mark McWatters.
Hauptman is Sen. Tom Cotton’s economic policy advisor and staff director of the Senate’s Economic Policy Subcommittee. He also served on Trump’s 2016 presidential transition team and was Sen. Mitt Romney’s (R-Utah) financial services policy advisor when Romney was the GOP presidential nominee in 2012.
From 2015 to 2016, Hauptman served on the SEC’s Advisory Committee for Small and Emerging Companies.
Hauptman was a fixed-income trader in Tokyo, New York City, and Sydney, Australia. He earned his MBA from Columbia University and his B.A. from UCLA.
