BOK Financial Exec Joins Fed Advisory Council

The Federal Reserve Board of Governors names BOK Financial Corp. Senior Vice President Paula Bryant-Ellis to its Consumer Advisory Council.
Bryant-Ellis and nine other new members will serve three-year terms.
The Consumer Advisory Council advises the Federal Reserve Board of Governors directly on a wide range of consumer laws and regulations, including the Consumer Credit Protection Act, the Truth in Lending Act, and the Community Reinvestment Act.
“It’s a tremendous honor for Paula to be selected as one of the advisors to the Federal Reserve,” said Senior Executive Vice President Steve Bradshaw. “I know her exceptional leadership skills, banking expertise and passion for community development will be a guiding force as the Council advises the Board of Governors regarding consumer policy issues.”
The Council meets three times a year in Washington, D.C., with Chairman Ben Bernanke and the Federal Reserve Board of Governors. The Consumer Advisory Council is one of three councils that advise the Federal Reserve Board of Governors directly.
“I am honored to have this opportunity and responsibility at a very important time for financial services consumers and the financial services industry,” Bryant-Ellis said.
Bryant-Ellis is the manager of the Community Development Banking Group for the seven bank subsidiaries of BOK Financial. She also is president of the BOKF Community Development Fund, a community development corporation and an equity subsidiary created to focus on supporting affordable housing and other real estate development, economic development, small business expansion, and the revitalization and stabilization of low- and moderate-income areas in the communities served by BOK Financial’s seven subsidiary banks.
