Richard Cox has 33 years experience as a bank examiner for the FDIC and has led examinations ranging from small community banks, to regional and money center banks.
From 2002 through 2010 he was the FDIC’s resident examiner-in-charge of Bank of America, which included briefings to the Chairman of the FDIC and other Senior Executives throughout the financial crisis. He spent the majority of his career in the New York Region where he was a field Capital Markets Specialist since 1991.
He was named Regional Employee of the Year in 1996 largely due to his work at Banker’s Trust Company and at Diawa Bank following a $1B defalcation. He also developed and taught capital markets and financial analysis courses for the FDIC over a 20 year span.
This included an assignment to adopt an FDIC course for use by Thailand’s Central Bank in 2000. Mr. Cox graduated Cum Laude from Millersville University in 1977 and in the top 3% of his class from Prochnow Graduate School of Banking at the University of Wisconsin in 1987.
