As part of our continuing regulatory advocacy efforts, WBA's Rose Oswald Poels (right) and Daryll Lund (left) met last week at the WBA Office with FDIC Regional Ombudsman Dan Marcotte (center). Several topics were discussed during the hour-long meeting including liquidity risk management, the process for dissolution of investment subsidiaries, and banking trends. WBA also learned that with the promotion last summer of former FDIC Chicago Regional Director Anthony Lowe to the position of FDIC Ombudsman and Director of Office of Ombudsman, the national Ombudsman office is being relocated to Chicago from Washington D.C. In addition, John Conneely was named FDIC Chicago Regional Director replacing Mr. Lowe effective January 1, 2018, having most recently served as deputy regional director for the FDIC's New York region. Marcotte emphasized during the meeting that he encourages bankers who may have any questions or concerns regarding FDIC matters or exams, to contact his office for assistance. WBA members will also have the opportunity to interact with Marcotte at two upcoming events, WBA's Economic Forecast Luncheon on January 22 and WBA's Bank Executives Conference in February.
