Another W&L-Atlanta Fed Connection

— by on April 18th, 2011

Soon after we noted the recent appointment of Washington and Lee alumnus T. Lee Robinson, of the Class of 1985, to the New Orleans Branch of the Federal Reserve Bank of Atlanta last week, readers brought to our attention that a second W&L alumnus is also serving in an advisory capacity to the Atlanta Fed.

In January, David Stovall, of the Class of 1969, president and chief executive officer of Stein Mart Inc., was appointed to the board of directors of the Federal Reserve Bank of Atlanta’s Jacksonville Branch.

David’s position with Stein Mart was the subject of another previous blog post back in 2009.

The Atlanta Fed territory covers the Sixth Federal Reserve District, which includes Alabama, Florida, Georgia, and portions of Louisiana, Mississippi, and Tennessee.
