Under a process that is prescribed by the Federal Reserve Act, the Kansas City Fed’s Board of Directors has formed a search committee for the next Bank president. The committee consists of the Bank’s Class B and C directors, who represent the public. These directors are not affiliated with the banking industry.
The Search Committee is diligently conducting a nationwide search aiming to identify a diverse, highly qualified and broad pool of candidates. Its work will be supported by Egon Zehnder, a global leadership advisory and executive search firm.
At the conclusion of the search, the Kansas City Fed’s nonbanker Class B and C directors will appoint the new president. The appointment is subject to the approval of the Federal Reserve Board of Governors in Washington, DC.
Collecting stakeholder feedback and public input is a crucial piece of this process, and the Kansas City Fed will offer multiple avenues to provide information as the Search Committee reviews nominations and applicants.
María Griego-Raby, president and principal of Contract Associates in Albuquerque, New Mexico, serves as chair of the Search Committee. Learn more about the Search Committee here.
