June 5, 2014 – NCUA Inspector General James Hagen on Tuesday announced William Bruns as the agency's next deputy inspector general.

"Bill Bruns will be an excellent Deputy Inspector General," Hagen said in a statement. "He brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to the position. Working with him in the past, I have found he maintains the independence of the Office of Inspector General while offering solid and constructive recommendations on how the agency can improve its operations."

Bruns joined NCUA in 2008, according to the agency, and previously served as a senior auditor in the inspector general's office. NCUA's statement notes that since Bruns joined the agency, he has been "instrumental in conducting or overseeing nearly every material loss review of liquidated credit unions, as well as overseeing the agency's Financial Statement Audits and collaborating on congressional requests."

Before joining NCUA, Bruns worked for the U.S. Postal Service Office of Inspector General and the U.S. Department of the Treasury Office of Inspector General.
