Before joining OnPoint as Chief Legal Officer, she held General Counsel and Chief Compliance Officer positions at Grit Financial Inc. and Aven, a California-based fintech startup.
“For 30 years, I’ve counseled various financial institutions, helping them manage legal risk and compliance,” said Oliver. “It’s an honor to rejoin and expand my role at OnPoint, and I look forward to continuing to evolve its legal functions to protect OnPoint, its members and communities.”
