Edward J. Hanley Named Senior Deputy Comptroller for Administration
WASHINGTON, D.C. — The Office of the Comptroller of the Currency (OCC) announced today that Edward J. Hanley will be the OCC's new Senior Deputy Comptroller for Administration. He is currently head of the Environmental Protection Agency's One Stop Reporting program and previously served as EPA's Deputy Assistant Administrator for Administration and Resources Management.
Mr. Hanley, who begins work at the OCC on March 2, will have broad responsibility for the agency's administrative and support functions, including procurement, human resources, facilities management, financial operations, and diversity and equal opportunity programs.
"I'm delighted that Ed will be joining the OCC," said Comptroller Eugene A. Ludwig. "I was particularly impressed with the work he did at the EPA in improving the efficiency of the agency's operations. That background fits perfectly with our goals at the OCC."
As Deputy Assistant Administrator for Administration and Resources Management from 1989 to 1993, Mr. Hanley was the EPA's senior official responsible for budget, finance, information technology, facilities, procurement and human resources. He later served as Special Assistant to the Assistant Administrator before taking responsibility for the agency's One Stop Reporting program.
The EPA's One Stop Reporting program began as an 18- month pilot to streamline the reporting process, integrate environmental program delivery and improve public access to environmental information. In July, 1997, the EPA's administrator announced that the major elements of the program had been adopted by the agency and would be implemented nationwide.
Mr. Hanley graduated from Colgate University with a B.A. in political science in 1963. He became a Presidential Management Intern and served as a special assistant to Postmaster General Lawrence F. O'Brien.
