In 2001, Mr. Hornsby was promoted to group vice president and branch manager of the Portland branch of the Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco. Reporting to the Board of Directors, Mr. Hornsby had overall responsibility for the Fed’s efforts in Oregon, Idaho and a portion of Washington. In addition to responsibility for the Portland branch, Mr. Hornsby was assigned district-wide responsibility for business development in Payment Services. In this role, Mr. Hornsby led the bank’s effort to market correspondent banking services to 1,400 financial institutions throughout the western United States and Guam.
