OCC People: Marietta Perkins Designated Senior National Bank Examiner
On October 30, Comptroller of the Currency Thomas J. Curry designated Marietta Perkins as Senior National Bank Examiner (SNBE), a title conferred upon national bank examiners who have distinguished themselves through high-quality performance and service as field examiners, subject matter experts, and advisers on highly complex and technical bank supervision issues.

“Throughout the OCC’s 150-year history, very few have earned the right to be called Senior National Bank Examiner,” wrote Comptroller Curry when he made the announcement. “Marietta has certainly earned it through her accomplishments and her significant contributions to the agency, but more importantly, by representing the very best of what an examiner can be.”
Perkins says she is humbled to be named an SNBE and follow in the footsteps of examiners whom she very much admires and respects. “Early in my career, I was counseled on a number of occasions that I would never have a career at the OCC as an asset management examiner. I hope this paves the way for others at the OCC who have a passion for their specialty that indeed you can have a career that may not be directly related to credit risk,” says Perkins.
Perkins began her career at the OCC in 1978 as a field examiner in Kansas City, Mo. She earned her Trust commission in 1982 in Austin, Texas, where she was a Trust Sub-Regional Supervisor. After passing the UCE in 1986, she went on to work in a number of critical positions in the field and Headquarters. From 1992 until 2009, Perkins worked in the private industry and at the former Office of Federal Housing Enterprise Oversight, expanding her experiences and technical knowledge of investment management. She returned to the OCC in 2009 and soon became Examiner-in-Charge of BlackRock in 2010.
