Peter Judkins, Smalltown Maine Banker, Appointed To The Federal Reserve Bank Of Boston

PPH reports “Peter Judkins, recently appointed to the Federal Reserve Bank of Boston, is president and chief executive officer of Franklin Savings Bank.

Peter Judkins put a lot miles into a banking career that started in rural Maine, took him to financial centers in some of the country’s largest cities and eventually returned him to Maine. He’s bringing that experience with him to the board of the Federal Reserve Bank of Boston, where earlier this month he was appointed to a full term after completing the term of another director who resigned.

Q: How did you get on the Boston Fed board?
