Managing Director

Stacy assists clients on a variety of regulatory and supervisory issues, drawing on her expertise in policy analysis and development. Before joining Promontory, Stacy held various leadership positions in the Federal Reserve System and was actively involved in domestic and international policy development.


Prior to joining Promontory, Stacy worked for 19 years in the Federal Reserve on a range of policy and supervisory issues, including operational risk and payment systems. She was head of the Operational Risk Department in the Federal Reserve Bank of New York’s banking supervision group. She was also a member of the Basel Committee on Banking Supervision’s task force on supervision of systemically important banks, and was actively involved in the January 2013 issuance of its “Principles for Effective Risk Data Aggregation and Risk Reporting.” Stacy led the New York Fed’s Financial Infrastructure Department, working with major market participants and other domestic and foreign supervisors on improving risk-management practices in the over-the-counter derivatives markets. She co-chaired the Financial Stability Board’s OTC Derivatives Working Group from 2010-2011, contributing to its October 2010 report, “Implementing OTC Derivatives Market Reforms.”

Before joining the New York Fed, Stacy led the Risk and Policy and the Credit Risk Management Departments in the Federal Reserve Bank of Richmond’s banking supervision group, where she was responsible for a large team of risk examiners and built a quantitative-analysis team to review banks’ internal models used for Basel II. At the Richmond Fed, she was also responsible for Federal Reserve lending to depository institutions through the discount window.

Stacy was previously an assistant director and manager at the Federal Reserve Board, where she led and participated in several policy initiatives on a wide range of topics including Basel II capital, operational resiliency of financial markets, credit extensions, and government-sponsored enterprises.
