On October 12, 2017, Travis Nelson of the Reed Smith’s Financial Services Regulatory Group, organized the annual Office of the Comptroller of the Currency (OCC) Alumni Association reception and dinner in Washington, DC. Travis is the current Secretary-Treasurer and former board President of the Association.  Attended by nearly 100 current and former OCC employees, it was a great opportunity to reconnect with former friends and colleagues and establish new relationships.  The event featured great speeches by Comptroller Keith Noreika, Chief Counsel Amy Friend, and former Comptroller Tom Curry.  Also in attendance were former Comptrollers John Hawke and Robert Clarke, and former Acting Comptrollers John Walsh and Julie Williams.  It was a great way to celebrate the special bond among the dedicated professionals serving in the banking industry – both within and outside of the OCC.

Travis is formerly with the Enforcement Division at the OCC in Washington, DC. Travis is also Chair of the Banking Law Section of the New Jersey State Bar, and adjunct faculty at Villanova Law School, where he teaches Financial Institutions Regulation.
