The Council of Federal Home Loan Banks has lined up its next CEO.
The council said in a press release that Ryan Donovan will also serve as its president, effective Sept. 6. He will succeed John von Seggern, who retired last month.
Donovan previously served as chief advocacy officer at the Credit Union National Association. Donovan, who has also held positions at the California and Nevada Credit Union Leagues, began his career working for former Rep. Richard Gephardt (D-Mo.) and Rep. Brad Sherman (D-Calif.).
“Ryan brings almost two decades of advocacy and association experience that will help the council and its banks effectively deliver a unified advocacy message to policymakers in Washington,” Dan Moore, the council’s chairman, said in the release.
The council represents the positions and views of the FHLBank System.
