Richmond Fed Announces New IT Officers

The Federal Reserve Bank of Richmond announced the following officer appointments in its Information Technology Services department:

Cathy Doss has been named vice president and chief data officer, a new role designed to help align data policy and administration with relevant regulatory, legal and ethical mandates.

She joined the Richmond Fed in November from Fannie Mae, where she served as cross-functional business data officer for the organization since 2014. Prior to that, she was chief client officer at Equifax and held executive roles in data, marketing, and supply-chain management at Capital One.

Doss earned a bachelor’s degree in information systems from James Madison University, and an associate’s degree in nursing from J. Sargeant Reynolds Community College.

Jessica Pooley has been named assistant vice president of client services.

Pooley joined the Richmond Fed in January from the Federal Reserve’s National IT organization, where she had worked since 2008, first as a network design engineer and later in manager roles, including her most recent position as senior manager of network and security engineering.

Pooley previously worked in IT engineering for Verizon. She earned a bachelor’s degree in economics from the University of Richmond and also holds a U.S. patent in network traffic monitoring.

As part of our nation’s central bank, the Richmond Fed is one of 12 regional Reserve Banks working together with the Board of Governors to support a healthy economy and deliver on our mission to foster economic stability and strength. We connect with community and business leaders across the Fifth Federal Reserve District—including the Carolinas, District of Columbia, Maryland, Virginia, and most of West Virginia—to monitor economic conditions, address issues facing our communities, and share this information with monetary and financial policymakers. We also work with banks to ensure they are operating safely and soundly, supply financial institutions with currency that’s fit for distribution, and provide a safe and efficient way to transfer funds through our nation’s payments system.
