New York, NY – The Federal Home Loan Bank of New York (FHLBNY) is pleased to announce that its Board of Directors has selected Ángela Weyne, former Commissioner of Insurance for the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico, to serve as an Independent Director for a term that will expire on December 31, 2019. Ms. Weyne fills the Independent Director seat left vacant by the passing of Caren Franzini earlier this year.
“Ms. Weyne will make an outstanding addition to our Board, and her vast knowledge of the insurance industry will be of particular benefit to the FHLBNY and our cooperative,” said Michael M. Horn, Chairman of the FHLBNY. “We lost a tremendous colleague and wonderful friend when Caren Franzini passed away, and we still feel her absence at our Board table. But we know that the contributions Ms. Weyne will make in her new role will keep our cooperative strong and focused on supporting the communities we serve.”
Prior to joining the FHLBNY’s Board, Ms. Weyne served a four-year term as Commissioner of Insurance for the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico, from 2013 through 2016.
