On Tuesday, the FDIC announced the selection of eight new members to serve on the Advisory Committee on Community Banking, which provides advice and recommendations to the regulator on a number of community bank policy issues.

“We are fortunate to have such talented and dedicated community bank leaders join our Advisory Committee, which has been a valuable resource for the FDIC over the last few years,” FDIC Chairman Martin Gruenberg said. “The Advisory Committee has proven to be a key source of information and input for the FDIC on the many significant issues facing community banks.”

The committee holds discussions and provides the FDIC with input on a wide range of regulatory matters, including examination policies and procedures, credit and lending practices, deposit insurance assessments, insurance coverage and compliance.

New members of the committee include the Texas-based Bank of the West Chairman and COO Cynthia Blankenship, the Utah-based American Bank of Commerce President and CEO Leonel Castillo, the Oklahoma-based First Bethany Bancorp President and CEO Jane Haskin, the Nebraska-based Pinnacle Bank President Mark Hesser, the Arizona-based Western Alliance Bank CEO James Lundy, the North Carolina-based Mechanics & Farmers Bank President, CEO and Director Kim Saunders, the Florida-based Stonegate Bank President, CEO and Director David Seleski and the Georgia-based First Peoples Bank President and CEO Derek Williams.
