Tennessee Banker Appointed Chairman of ABA’s American Bankers Council


​WASHINGTON — The American Bankers Association has appointed D. Bryan Jordan as chairman of ABA’s American Bankers Council for the 2016-2017 membership year. Jordan is currently chairman, president and CEO of First Horizon National Corp. in Memphis, Tenn.
“This council represents a critical segment of our nation’s financial system, and ABA is extremely fortunate to have Bryan’s leadership,” said Rob Nichols, ABA president and CEO. “His commitment and experience will be a tremendous asset to our industry.”
Prior to his current role with First Horizon, Jordan has held numerous leadership positions including CFO at First Horizon and CFO at Regions Financial Corp. in Birmingham, Ala.
The American Bankers Council (ABC) is ABA’s banker-driven peer group for midsize bank chief executives. The Council provides feedback and direction to the ABA on key regulatory and legislative issues critical to midsize banks. In addition, the Council participates in regular meetings with their peers to exchange information and share best practices on issues affecting their banks.
Jordan, who earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in finance and accounting from Catawba College, precedes outgoing ABC chairman, John Hairston, president and CEO of Hancock Holding Company.
The American Bankers Association is the voice of the nation’s $16 trillion banking industry, which is composed of small, regional and large banks that together employ more than 2 million people, safeguard $12 trillion in deposits and extend more than $8 trillion in loans.
