ABA Statement on Nomination of Martin Gruenberg to Serve as FDIC Chairman

"We congratulate Martin Gruenberg on President Biden's decision to nominate him to serve as FDIC Chairman for the second time. While we haven't always agreed on every issue, we have always appreciated Acting Chairman Gruenberg's commitment to public service, his willingness to engage with industry and our shared interest in financial inclusion. We look forward to learning more about his priorities during the confirmation process, as well as hearing the views of the other two FDIC nominees, Travis Hill and Jonathan McKernan. In the meantime, we will work with the Acting Chairman and the FDIC staff to make sure America's banks can continue to serve their customers, clients and communities and support the broader economy."
