The White House said Friday it plans to nominate to the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp. a former Bush administration official who helped develop the government’s response to the 2008 financial crisis.

President Barack Obama said he would nominate Jeremiah Norton, currently an executive with J.P. Morgan Chase & Co., to serve on the FDIC’s five-member board. He was a deputy assistant secretary in the Treasury Department from 2007 to 2009, where he was an adviser to former Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson during the financial crisis. He also worked as a banking staffer for Rep. Edward Royce (R., Calif.) The choice fills a second spot on the board for a Republican-backed nominee, in keeping with a requirement that the FDIC’s board not be dominated by one political party.
