First Bank (FRBA), 2465 Kuser Road, Hamilton 08690. 609-528-4400. Patrick L. Ryan, CEO. www.firstbanknj.com.
The CEO of First Bank, Patrick L. Ryan, has been appointed to the Federal Reserve Bank of Philadelphia’s Community Depository Institutions Advisory Council (CDIAC).
The 12-member CDIAC comprises representatives from commercial banks, thrift institutions, and credit unions. The council convenes twice a year with officials from the Federal Reserve Bank of Philadelphia to share insights about economic and business trends facing community depository institutions in their local markets. After each local meeting, a representative from the Philadelphia council joins counterparts from other Federal Reserve Banks at a meeting hosted by the Federal Reserve Board of Governors in Washington, D.C. Ryan will serve a three-year term beginning in March.
“I am honored that the Federal Reserve Bank of Philadelphia recognizes First Bank’s economic impact to the region,” Ryan said. “Our commitment has always been to support the local economy, while developing relationship-based banking that puts customers first. We follow a simple, old-fashioned recipe of ethics, integrity and customer service — and it’s a recipe that works, since we recently surpassed $1 billion in total assets.”
First Bank, headquartered on Kuser Road in Hamilton, has nine branches throughout New Jersey and one in Trevose, Pennsylvania.
Ryan began his 20-year banking career in 1997 as an investment banking analyst at Goldman Sachs, working in New York and London. He also worked at Medsite, Bain and Company, and Yardville National Bank. He has a bachelor’s degree in government from Hamilton College and an M.B.A. from Dartmouth University’s Tuck School of Business.
