John McAdams has been appointed senior vice-president and head of export finance at US Ex-Im Bank. McAdams is the senior officer responsible for all of the bank’s short, medium and long-term loan guarantee and insurance programmes, including transportation, project finance and small business.
Kenneth Tinsley succeeds McAdams as senior vice-president of credit and risk management. In that capacity Tinsley oversees risk management including credit underwriting, credit review and compliance, country risk and economic analysis, and engineering and environmental analysis.
McAdams joined Ex-Im from Bank of America where he held a number of executive management positions in Washington, DC, and Chicago, including responsibilities for trade finance, corporate banking in the Midwest and New England markets, and oversight of the Asia-Pacific region. Most recently he was president of private banking for the mid-Atlantic region.
Tinsley, who joined Ex-Im as a loan officer in 1979, most recently was vice-president of credit underwriting, where he was responsible on a global basis for underwriting all short and medium-term risk, financial institution credit risk, and select long-term corporate risk for the bank.
His service in a number of Ex-Im divisions has given him experience in all of the lending programmes, with responsibility for such diverse markets as Latin America, Middle East, and Sub-Saharan Africa.
