CSBS Board of Directors Announces the Passing of John W. Ryan

The Conference of State Bank Supervisors (CSBS) announced last week that John W. Ryan, President and Chief Executive Officer of CSBS, died unexpectedly in Washington, D.C.

“On behalf of the CSBS Board of Directors, executive team, staff and membership, we extend our deepest sympathies to John’s family and everyone who knew and worked with John over his more than 30-year career. John was an inspirational and humble leader who brought incredible dedication, intellect and passion to CSBS, the state regulatory system and financial services more broadly,” said Melanie Hall, Chair of the CSBS Board of Directors.

Saddened by the news of John's passing, Commissioner Mick Thompson said, "It was a pleasure to work with John over the past 25 years. He was a tireless supporter of the community banking system. The success and growth of CSBS over the past decade can be directly tied to John's dedication and leadership. He will be greatly missed."
