Richmond Fed Announces Officer Appointment

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

Matthew Foote has been appointed an assistant vice president and corporate secretary, with responsibility for managing the Richmond Fed’s relationship with its Board of Directors.

Foote joined the Richmond Fed as an attorney in 2014 and later assumed additional responsibilities as assistant corporate secretary. He previously worked as associate general counsel for Scandinavian Tobacco Group and as an attorney for Hirschler Fleischer.

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.
