FDIC Atlanta Regional Director Tom Dujenski announced this week that he will retire from the FDIC effective May 3, 2014. Tom has held the Atlanta post since 2010 and wraps up a 30-year career with the FDIC. We wish Tom all the best.

FDIC Atlanta Deputy Regional Director Michael Dean has been announced as acting Regional Director, and is the leading candidate to be named as the permanent Regional Director.  Mike has served most recently as the Deputy Regional Director for Compliance & CRA Examinations and Enforcement, where we have gotten to know him well.  Through out interactions, we have found him to be a solid, experienced banking regulator.  He is approachable and candid, and open to listen to problems and even help in fixing those problems in some cases.  With his previous service in DC, he is also well positioned to assist the Atlanta region work with the national FDIC office.  We look forward to continuing to work with Mike in his new role.
