CSBS Names Laura Fisher as Communications Head
Washington, D.C. – Laura Fisher has joined the Conference of State Bank Supervisors (CSBS) as Vice President of Communications, the organization announced today. Her new role builds on a 22-year career of working in financial communications, media relations and issues advocacy.
Most recently, Fisher served as Senior Vice President for the public affairs firm VOX Global, where she led the Financial Services and Fintech Practice Group. In this role, she advised government, nonprofit and corporate clients on working with the media, engaging bank and financial services professionals, and managing reputation risk. Fisher also previously worked as a senior executive at the American Bankers Association.
In her new role, Fisher will be responsible for managing CSBS’s communications program, including media outreach, public policy communications, executive communications, digital marketing and brand management. She will work with a wide range of stakeholders, from CSBS members to reporters and editors to policy influentials.
John Ryan, CSBS President and CEO: “We are so fortunate to have someone with Laura’s credentials wanting to join our organization. With her track record and family background in banking, Laura’s leadership will undoubtedly lead to a greater appreciation for the vital role that state regulators perform in the U.S. financial system and actions they are taking to modernize the system.”
Laura Fisher, CSBS Vice President of Communications: “I’m excited to join this esteemed organization and lead a team of highly skilled and talented communicators. I look forward to supporting the state regulators in their efforts to ensure that financial services are safe and sound to protect consumers and foster economic development.”
