The Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) today announced the retirement of Thomas J. Dujenski as Atlanta's Regional Director effective May 3, 2014. Mr. Dujenski has overseen the FDIC's bank supervision activities in Alabama, Florida, Georgia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Virginia, and West Virginia since 2010.

"Tom has done a tremendous job bringing the region through the most challenging and critical times in its history. Tom will be profoundly missed," said Doreen R. Eberley, Director of the Division of Risk Management Supervision, and Mark Pearce, Director of the Division of Depositor and Consumer Protection, in a joint announcement to staff.

During his 31-year career at the FDIC, Mr. Dujenski has served as a Field Examiner, Field Supervisor, Assistant Regional Director, Deputy Regional Director, and Regional Director for both the Dallas and Atlanta Regions. "Throughout his career Tom has shown an exemplary commitment and dedication to the FDIC and its mission," Ms. Eberley said.

Michael J. Dean (Mike), a 27-year veteran of the FDIC with examiner commissions in both risk management and consumer protection, will serve as Acting Regional Director. Mike is currently Deputy Regional Director and is responsible for the Atlanta Region's Depositor and Consumer Protection Program, and he previously served as Deputy Regional Director for both risk management and consumer protection.
