Washington DFI Promotes Lacy-Roberts to Credit Union Program Manager

Beginning May 1, the Washington state credit union examiners will have new—but familiar—leadership in charge of their clients’ examination and supervision. Doug Lacy-Roberts has been named the Washington State Division of Credit Unions’ new program manager.

“I am honored by the appointment and look forward to promoting the stability and growth of the credit union industry in Washington,” Lacy-Roberts said in a prepared statement.

Mike Delimont, the current program manager, is retiring.

Before his promotion and during his 12-year career with the division, Lacy-Roberts supervised six examiners and was instrumental in the division’s examination and supervision program. Additionally, Lacy-Roberts worked for seven years as a credit specialist for the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) during the savings and loan crisis in the late 1980s and early 1990s.

The DFI’s Division of Credit Unions Director Linda Jekel noted that Lacy-Roberts “has a reputation of being fair with credit unions and is a great resource for examiners.”

A Washington native, Lacy-Roberts said he is looking forward to the challenges of the new position, as well as to promoting the stability and general growth of Washington’s credit unions.

Lacy-Roberts holds an undergraduate degree in political science and a master of business administration degree from Washington State University. He also earned a master’s degree in international management from Thunderbird, The American Graduate School of International Management. Lacy-Roberts is married and has a seven-year-old daughter.
