The Federal Reserve Bank of Philadelphia today announced the election of David R. Hunsicker, chairman, president, and CEO of New Tripoli Bank, and Rosemary Turner, president of the United Parcel Service’s (UPS) Chesapeake District, to its board of directors. The new directors began their three-year terms on January 1, 2013.
The Bank also announced the re-appointments of Jeremy Nowak, president of J Nowak and Associates, LLC, and James E. Nevels, chairman and founder of The Swarthmore Group, to second one-year terms as chairman and deputy chairman, respectively.
Each of the Reserve Banks has a nine-member board of directors who oversee the Bank’s direction and performance. They also participate in the formulation of the Fed’s monetary policy through their reports on economic and financial conditions and their decisions on the Bank’s discount rate.
The board of directors is chosen through a nonpolitical process. Three Class A directors are elected by the District’s member banks to represent banking. Three Class B directors are also elected by member banks to represent the public; by law, they cannot be directors or officers of a bank or bank holding company. The Board of Governors appoints three Class C directors, who are nonbankers, including the chair and deputy chair. Hunsicker will serve as a Class A director and Turner will serve as a Class B director.
