Bloom named CFO at Office of the Comptroller of the Currency

Thomas Bloom will start Monday as the senior deputy comptroller and chief financial officer at the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency, which regulates the nation's banks.

Bloom since 1999 has been director and chief financial officer at the Defense Finance and Accounting Service, where he oversaw a budget of $1.6 billion and 15,500 employees.

Comptroller of the Currency John Hawke Jr. said Bloom's experience at DFAS will transfer to OCC as it continues to modernize and improve its financial and management systems.

'Tom not only implemented innovative performance and measurement tools at DFAS, he restructured the agency into a customer-focused, strategy-based and metrics-driven organization,' Hawke said in a statement.

FAA had named Bloom as its CFO last month, but he ultimately went to OCC.

In previous positions, Bloom served as CFO for both the General Services Administration and the Commerce Department. He received a B.S. in Business Administration from the University of Michigan in 1975.
