The White House yesterday nominated Covington & Burling partner John Dugan to become comptroller of the currency.
Dugan served under then-President George H.W. Bush as assistant secretary of the treasury for domestic finance. He was also the Republican general counsel to the Senate Committee on Banking, Housing and Urban Affairs.
Dugan has been at Covington & Burling for 12 years, where he heads up the firm’s financial institutions group. He has represented the American Bankers Association, Bank One, Brown Brothers Harriman & Co., Freddie Mac and PNC Bank Corp.
