WASHINGTON – David Bohigian, Acting President and CEO of the Overseas Private Investment Corporation (OPIC), the U.S. Government’s development finance institution, has sworn in a new member to serve on OPIC’s Board of Directors, Irving W. Bailey II.

“We are pleased to welcome Mr. Bailey to OPIC’s Board of Directors at such an important time for the agency,” said OPIC Acting President and CEO David Bohigian. “Mr. Bailey brings expertise in the financial services industry and significant private sector experience to the Board.”

Christopher P. Vincze was also sworn in today. The new members were nominated to the OPIC Board by President Donald J. Trump and confirmed by the United States Senate on June 13, 2019.

OPIC is preparing to transform into a new, modernized agency called the U.S. International Development Finance Corporation (DFC) in October. Equipped with a more than doubled investment cap of $60 billion and new tools like equity authority, the DFC will have more resources to invest in the least developed countries around the world.
