DALLAS—The Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas has named Lorenzo Garza vice president in the banking supervision and regulation department.
Garza has spent 13 years at the Dallas Fed. In his new position, Garza will oversee a group responsible for contributing to the Fed’s risk, policy, and surveillance efforts by identifying and communicating industry and financial institution risk for the Eleventh District.
