First Financial Northwest in Renton, Wash., has added a regulatory veteran to its board.

The $1.1 billion-asset company said in a press release Friday that Richard Riccobono had also joined the board of its First Financial Diversified Corp. unit.

Riccobono, director of the Pacific Coast Banking School, recently served as director of banks for the Washington State Department of Financial Institutions. He is also a former president and chief executive of the Federal Home Loan Bank of Seattle and a former deputy director of the Office of Thrift Supervision.

Riccobono's "expansive banking and regulatory background, combined with his legal and accounting experience, will be a great asset," Joseph Kiley III, First Financial's president and CEO, said in the release.
