I was deeply saddened to hear of the death of John W. Ryan, President and CEO of the Conference of State Bank Supervisors. Throughout his long career in banking and financial services, John demonstrated unparalleled dedication to his work. His steadfast support for state regulators and his commitment to strong state financial supervision was a tremendous asset to state banks and their consumers and communities across the nation.
I had the honor of working with John and enjoyed our lively conversations. I also appreciated his openness to exploring ways for the OCC and CSBS to collaborate to raise the bar on bank regulation to benefit the nation’s financial system.
