A longtime Federal Reserve Bank executive who stepped in as interim chief executive officer of the Federal Reserve Bank of Richmond in April has announced plans to retire.
Mark Mullinix, who joined the Richmond Fed as the bank’s first vice president and chief operating officer in June 2013, will retire in June, the bank announced Thursday.
Mullinix was named interim president and CEO in April when Jeffrey M. Lacker, the Richmond Fed’s president and CEO for 13 years, resigned after admitting his role in the leak of confidential, market-sensitive information to a Wall Street newsletter. Lacker had previously announced plans to retire later in 2017.
In early December, Thomas I. Barkin, a senior executive at the global consulting firm McKinsey & Co., was chosen as the next president and chief executive officer of the Federal Reserve Bank of Richmond. He started Monday.
