President Trump yesterday announced that he would nominate Rodney Brown to a seat on the three-member board of the Farm Credit Administration, which regulates the Farm Credit System.
A career banker and Kansas native, Brown is the retired president and CEO of the California Bankers Association, prior to which he was the CEO of a California community bank. Brown would replace FCA board member Jeffery Hall, whose term expired in 2018.
“Rodney Brown’s decades of experience in financial services at institutions active in agricultural lending make him an excellent nominee for the Farm Credit Administration’s board,” said ABA SVP Ed Elfmann. “As the farm economy faces challenging times, the extensive experience and unique skill set that Rodney will bring to the Farm Credit Administration will help ensure that our nation’s farmers and ranchers have access to the credit they need and taxpayers have the oversight they deserve.”
