 CSBS Names Kyle Thomas Vice President, Accreditation and Supervisory Processes  

Washington, D.C. – CSBS has announced Kyle Thomas as Vice President of Accreditation and Supervisory Processes, effective June 15.

In this role, Thomas will also assume leadership of the CSBS Accreditation program, focusing on staff development, strategic direction, and corporate governance.  He will continue to be an integral part of the team leading supervisory processes for CSBS, working with state and federal agencies on supervisory issues, examination tools, and guidance.
“I am pleased to have Kyle further expand his role and influence at CSBS,” said CSBS President and CEO John W. Ryan.  “Kyle contributes a diverse and commanding skillset that have benefited regulators nationwide over the past seven years. Kyle will be instrumental to our accreditation and supervisory processes, and I look forward to his continued contributions.”

The CSBS Accreditation Program provides a comprehensive review of a state regulatory agency’s ability to discharge its responsibilities. Through an investigation of all department operations - including administration, finance, personnel, training, examination, supervision, and legislative powers – the Accreditation Program establishes a high standard for the operation of state banking agencies. Currently, 47 state banking departments and 24 state mortgage departments are accredited.

Thomas began at CSBS in 2010, working to develop and implement examination processes and technologies across the organization’s membership. Thomas facilitates a nationwide community of state bank examiners that report on developing trends, supervisory challenges, and new financial market risks. Thomas has also overseen the development of several interagency examination applications, as well as enhanced interagency coordination between state and federal regulators.

Thomas earned an undergraduate degree from the University of Northern Iowa’s School of Business and a graduate degree from the Darla Moore School of Business of the University of South Carolina. He is also an alumnus of the Graduate School of Banking at Colorado and maintains a Certified Examiner-in-Charge certification from CSBS.  Thomas is also active in several DC-based community engagement and civic organizations, including Habitat for Humanity.

Thomas grew up in Northeast Iowa on a cattle and small-crop farming operation, where much of his family continues to reside to this day.
