FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
PR-35-94 (6-2-94)
 

The FDIC announced today the appointment of Naomi D. Churchill as the new Director of the agency's Office of Equal Opportunity (OEO). She succeeds Mae Culp, who retired in April after nearly 10 years as OEO Director.

Churchill is an attorney who since 1990 has been owner and principal official of Churchill and Associates, a training and management consulting firm located in Gaithersburg, MD. Prior to starting her consulting firm, Churchill served as Director of Equal Opportunity for the U.S. Department of Agriculture from 1987 to 1990.

As the FDIC's OEO Director, Churchill will lead a 40-person staff that coordinates the agency's efforts in areas such as: equal opportunity in hiring and promotion; EEO training and complaint processing; and the fostering of opportunities for minority- and women-owned businesses that want to do work for the FDIC. Her appointment was effective May 31.

FDIC Chairman Andrew C. Hove, Jr., said today: "Naomi Churchill is a dynamic and respected policymaker, motivator and alliance builder in the field of equal employment opportunity. We are very fortunate to have her serving as Director of the FDIC's Office of Equal Opportunity."

Churchill is a native of Newport News, VA. She received a B.A. degree in social work from Norfolk State University, Norfolk, VA, in 1972, an M.S. degree in education from Indiana University, Bloomington, IN, in 1977, and a law degree from Catholic University, Washington, DC, in 1982.
