Diane Casey-Landry, American Bankers Association executive vice president and chief operating officer, announced today that she will leave the group at the end of March.
Casey-Landry's departure comes in the wake of former Oklahoma Governor and insurance lobbyist having started as the ABA's president/CEO on Monday.
Casey-Landry was the president/CEO of America's Community Bankers for seven years before the association merged with the ABA. She was a strong opponent of credit unions' efforts to gain more power.
Previously, she was a principal and national director of financial services for Grant Thornton LLP where she chaired the firm's National Financial Services Committee and oversaw its financial services practice. Before Grant Thornton she was executive director of the Independent Community Bankers of America. She began her career as a bank examiner with the Federal Reserve Bank of Cleveland.
