Richmond Fed Announces Officer Appointment

The Federal Reserve Bank of Richmond announces the following appointment, effective September 1:

Chris Tunstall has been promoted to assistant vice president in the Human Resources department with responsibility for talent acquisition, talent and organizational development and the Office of Diversity & Inclusion.

Tunstall joined the Richmond Fed in 2014. Previously, he worked at SAS Institute and Lowe’s Companies, both in North Carolina. He is a graduate of Longwood University and received a master’s degree in industrial and organizational psychology from Radford University.

As part of our nation’s central bank, the Richmond Fed is one of 12 regional Reserve Banks working together with the Board of Governors to support a healthy economy and deliver on our mission to foster economic stability and strength. We connect with community and business leaders across the Fifth Federal Reserve District—including the Carolinas, District of Columbia, Maryland, Virginia, and most of West Virginia—to monitor economic conditions, address issues facing our communities, and share this information with monetary and financial policymakers. We also work with banks to ensure they are operating safely and soundly, supply financial institutions with currency that’s fit for distribution, and provide a safe and efficient way to transfer funds through our nation’s payments system.
