Virginia Bankers Association
What is new and exciting with you now or since your LEAD VIRGINIA class year?
Six months ago, I joined the Virginia Bankers Association as General Counsel. In my new role, I serve as the primary legal counsel for the VBA and its for-profit affiliates, which include an insurance agency, an employee benefits company, several title insurance agencies and a management services company. My duties include: (i) helping our member banks interpret and comply with banking laws and regulations; (ii) lobbying state and federal legislatures and regulatory agencies on behalf of the banking industry; and (iii) addressing the general corporate and transactional legal needs of the VBA and its for-profit affiliates. Previously, I was a partner at Hunton & Williams where my legal practice focused on corporate and securities transactions.
In addition, I recently joined the board of directors of the Children’s Home Society of Virginia, a full-service non-profit adoption agency that has been finding permanent loving homes for children, including special needs children, throughout Virginia for more than 100 years. In addition to serving on the board, I serve as chairman of the finance committee.
Finally, in all my spare time, I trained for and completed an ironman triathlon (2.4 mile swim, 112 mile bike, 26.2 mile run) in October and lived to tell about it.
