Rodney Hood is the first African-American to lead a federal banking regulatory agency, the National Credit Union Administration-the independent agency that oversees the nation's federally insured credit unions. Since entering the role last year, Chairman Hood has focused on building and reinforcing places that have fallen behind, often in areas where opportunity is limited, like hard-pressed urban neighborhoods and rural communities fighting decline.
