Former Regions Bank EVP Barred From Banking by Fed

On Monday, the Federal Reserve Board barred Thomas A. Neely, Jr., the former executive vice president and business services credit executive of Regions Bank, from participating in the affairs of any insured depository institution.

Neely was also ordered to pay a civil penalty of $100,000 to settle administrative charges that he breached his fiduciary duties.

The issuance of a consent order of prohibition and assessment of a civil money penalty resolves administrative charge brought by the Federal Reserve Board in June 2014. Those charges alleged that Neely had engaged in violations of law, unsafe and unsound banking practices, and breaches of his fiduciary duties in connection with his role in Regions Bank’s improper reporting of nonaccrual loans in the first quarter of 2009, and by providing misleading information to federal and state bank examiners.
