President Biden announced his intent to nominate individuals who will serve as key leaders in his administration on April 6. Included in that list was Osage Nation tribal member Vincent Logan.
Biden intends to nominate Logan to the Farm Credit Administration, according to a White House release.
The Farm Credit Administration (FCA) is an independent financial regulatory agency that oversees the Farm Credit System, a nationwide network of lending institutions that serves farmers, ranchers, agricultural cooperatives, and other eligible borrowers. FCA has been governed by a full-time, three-person board, whose members are appointed by the President with the advice and consent of the U.S. Senate.
“I am both honored and humbled to be nominated by President Biden to serve on the Farm Credit Administration Board,” Logan said. “I am thankful for the confidence that the President has in my ability to undertake this important role. I look forward to working with the Senate as they consider my nomination.”
Logan, a member of the Osage Nation, currently serves as the Chief Financial Officer and Chief Investment Officer for the Native American Agriculture Fund (NAAF). NAAF is the largest U.S. philanthropic organization focused exclusively on the needs of Native American farmers and ranchers.
Nominated by President Obama and confirmed by the U.S. Senate in 2014, Logan served as the Special Trustee for American Indians at the U.S. Department of the Interior. During his tenure, he was appointed to the Department of the Treasury’s Financial Literacy Education Commission.
Logan has worked in New York in both asset-based financing as a lawyer and in asset management as an investment advisor. As a lawyer, he practiced in aircraft, shipping, and equipment finance. As an investment advisor, he worked with institutional clients in developing investment policies, diversification strategies, and sovereign wealth funds.
He is an Oklahoma State University Foundation Governor, serves on the Board of Trustees of The Christensen Fund, and serves on the Board of Directors of the Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis, Little Rock Branch. He has mentored numerous professionals, guiding them through careers in law and the securities industry. He was educated at Oklahoma State University, the University of Oklahoma College of Law, and the School of International and Public Affairs at Columbia University.
