Office of the Comptroller of the Currency (OCC) veteran Rafael (Ralph) DeLeon has joined Ncontracts, a provider of integrated risk management and lending compliance solutions for the financial services industry, as senior vice president of industry engagement.
DeLeon previously served as the director of banking relations for the OCC. There, he was responsible for planning, organizing, implementing and directing outreach and training activities associated with the financial services industry.
He served as an expert advisor to the Deputy Comptroller for Public Affairs and worked closely with the Comptroller and senior OCC staff on banking industry issues and industry perceptions related to bank supervision, policy and operations. He also interpreted and explained bank supervision and policy for trade associations, state banking officials, and other stakeholders.
In his new role with Ncontracts, DeLeon will oversee the company’s regulatory outreach efforts and work with Ncontracts’ 3700+ customers around the country to help them with the changing regulatory landscape in Washington, DC.
“As the Biden administration begins shaping a new regulatory perspective, our customers will be facing new rules, deadlines, and opportunities,” says Michael Berman, CEO of Ncontracts, in a release. “Having someone with Ralph’s experience to help them navigate this environment is an enormous benefit for our clients and our employees.”
The addition of DeLeon as a senior leader to the company comes on the heels of the acquisition of QuestSoft Corp. earlier this year, as well as other senior leadership additions in human resources and sales.
