NCUA Board Reaction

“Cory has already played a significant role in several large, complex credit union resolutions while serving as deputy to the president of AMAC,” NCUA Chairman Todd Harper said. “With his extensive experience, exceptional business acumen, and strong management skills, Cory is well-suited to lead the Asset Management and Assistance Center and will hit the ground running.”

“Few jobs at NCUA are as crucial as President of AMAC, so I’m pleased we’ve promoted a high performer like Cory to this position,” board Vice Chairman Kyle Hauptman added.

Board member Rodney Hood said that Phariss “is knowledgeable, trustworthy, and studious. The NCUA significantly relied on Cory as he successfully managed the agency through the taxi medallion crisis, so I know he will be able to face any challenge that comes his way.”

Over 20 Years With the Agency

Phariss currently serves as the deputy to the president of AMAC. He joined the NCUA in 1999 and has served in various roles including supervisory examiner and director of supervision in the agency’s former Region IV.
