FDIC REORGANIZES, ESTABLISHES NEW DIVISION OF INSURANCE
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
The Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation Wednesday announced the creation of
a new Division of Insurance.
"The new Division of Insurance will identify and assess existing and emerging
risks to the deposit insurance funds," FDIC Chairman Ricki Helfer said.
"Establishing this new division as a formal element in the structure of the
organization is the next logical step in our effort to shift the FDIC from an agency
that resolves bank failures to an agency working to keep banks open and operating
safely and soundly."
The Division of Insurance is one of several organizational changes approved by
the FDIC Board of Directors to enhance the Corporation's decision-making processes
and to achieve the goals established by the strategic plan the Board adopted on April
24, 1995. Under the revised organizational structure, the Corporation's divisions
and offices will generally report to one of the three deputies to the Chairman. A new
Division of Administration will consolidate the functions of the Offices of Personnel
Management, Corporate Services, and Training and Educational Services.
In conjunction with these and other organizational changes, a number of
management changes where also announced, effective June 18, 1995. Jane Sartori,
Director of the Office of Training and Educational Services, will become Director of
the new Division of Administration. Nicholas Ketcha, Director of the FDIC's New York
Regional Office, will become Acting Director of the Division of Supervision. Carmen
Sullivan, Director of the Division of Information Resources Management, will become Director of the Office of the Ombudsman, where she will be responsible for the
Corporation's increased focus on serving the public. Jerry Langley, Deputy General
Counsel for Corporate Affairs and Administration, will become Executive Secretary of
