Statement from John Ryan on FDIC’s Tom Hoenig

Washington, D.C. – The Conference of State Bank Supervisors (CSBS) today thanked Tom Hoenig for his service as vice chairman of the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp.

CSBS President and CEO John Ryan: “Tom Hoenig has been the nation’s thought leader on systemic risk in the banking system. During and after the financial crisis, he held firm on the principle that the competitive advantage of the American banking system should be based on a well-capitalized system and not a race to higher and higher leverage. 

“He has been a voice of reason for community banks, recognizing they should not be burdened with regulatory approaches designed for systemic institutions. And with his leadership, state regulators have been able to better focus their efforts on safety, soundness and economic development on behalf of the consumer and business alike.”
