Ponce in N.Y. hires former regulator as its COO

Ponce Financial Group in Bronx, N.Y., has hired a former regulator as its chief operating officer.

The $1.7 billion-asset company said in a press release Friday that Luis Gonzalez Jr. will have the same role at its bank. 

Gonzalez held several posts at the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency over 15 years, at one point serving as acting assistant deputy comptroller. 

Gonzalez “will be an outstanding addition to our management team,” Carlos Naudon, Ponce’s president and CEO, said in the release. “He brings with him a deep knowledge base and level of experience in the banking industry. He also has a keen appreciation for the minority- and community-focused culture of the company.”
