The 12th District
San Francisco is the headquarters of the Twelfth Federal Reserve District, which includes the nine western states—Alaska, Arizona, California, Hawaii, Idaho, Nevada, Oregon, Utah, and Washington—plus American Samoa, Guam, and the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands. Of the twelve Federal Reserve Districts, the Twelfth District is the largest by geography and the size of its economy.
Mark A. Gould took office as Interim President and Chief Executive Officer of the Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco on June 18, 2018. In this role, he serves on the Federal Open Market Committee, bringing the Fed’s Twelfth District’s perspective to monetary policy discussions in Washington.
“The Fed encourages continuous learning, whether on the job or in the classroom. Everyone’s very supportive,” says admin and executive support team manager Ellen Toker.
