The Federal Reserve Board reappointed O.B. Grayson Hall Jr., chairman and chief executive at Regions Financial, to its Federal Advisory Council.

Hall was named to a one-year term, representing the Federal Reserve Bank of Atlanta, starting Jan. 12. He will be one of 12 members of council and will consult with the Fed's Board of Governors "on all matters within the Board's jurisdiction," the Fed said in a press release.

Hall also represented the Atlanta Fed last year on the Federal Advisory Council. Previously, Daryl Byrd, chief executive of the $16 billion-asset Iberiabank in Lafayette, La., was the Atlanta Fed's representative.

Hall has been CEO of the $119 billion-asset Regions since April 2010, and he was named the Birmingham, Ala., company's chairman in May 2013. Hall joined AmSouth Bank, a Regions' predecessor, in 1980.
