WASHINGTON — Diane Casey-Landry, the senior executive vice president and chief operating officer of the American Bankers Association, has announced she will leave the trade group on March 31.

Casey-Landry joined the trade group as its No. 2 in 2007, after helping merge the America's Community Bankers into the ABA. Casey-Landry served as president of ACB for eight years until the merger and previously worked at the Independent Community Bankers of America.

"The last decade has been a tumultuous one for our industry, but one that resulted in challenging and important work for the industry's trade associations," Casey-Landry said in a press release. "It's been an honor to serve the industry through two wonderful associations. With the transition from Ed Yingling to Frank Keating, it's time for me to move on and allow Frank to bring in his own management team, and for me to take on new challenges."

The group said Casey-Landry would stay involved with ABA on membership issues while she decides her next step. Casey-Landry had been considered a top candidate to lead the trade group before it announced it had tapped Frank Keating, the former head of the American Council of Life Insurers, as its next president.
