Miller seated on First National Bank board


IRON MOUNTAIN — Patti Miller has been appointed to the First National Bank & Trust Board of Directors.

Miller was a national bank examiner with the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency, or OCC, a bureau of the U.S. Department of the Treasury that is responsible for regulatory oversight of national banks and federal savings associations.

Miller retired in May 2019 after 29 years of federal service with the OCC’s Iron Mountain field office. During her tenure with the OCC, she was responsible for conducting and overseeing examination activities at national banks and federal savings associations of varying size and complexity, located primarily in Upper Michigan and Wisconsin.

For the last few years of her career, Miller reported to the Washington D.C. office and was responsible for reviewing bank appeals of examination findings, assessing “lessons learned” from the financial crisis, and conducting quality assurance over bank examination activities.

“We are very pleased to bring an individual of Patti’s caliber to our board of directors and our organization,” said David Kashian, president and CEO of First National Bank & Trust. “Patti’s depth and breadth of knowledge of the financial services industry will be of tremendous value as we continue to strategically position the bank for success now and well into the future.”

Miller has a bachelor of science in accounting from Northern Michigan University. She has lived in Dickinson County her entire life and is a member of the St. Rose Catholic Church and the Kiwanis Ski Club. Miller lives in Sagola with her husband, Bob; they have two adult children, Hannah and Jared.

Chartered in 1887, First National Bank & Trust is among the oldest and largest independently owned banks in the Upper Peninsula. FNBT has six locations in Iron Mountain, Kingsford, Menominee and Iron River, plus a First National Trust & Wealth Management office in Marquette.
