Prior to becoming FDIC Chairman, Mr. Powell was President and CEO of The First National Bank of Amarillo, which he started in 1997. He began his banking career in 1963 as Loan Officer and Secretary at the First Federal Savings & Loan of Amarillo.

From 2001-2005, Mr. Powell served as the 18th Chairman for the Federal Deposit and Insurance Corporation.
