Member Spotlight: Iowa Division of Banking

The Iowa Division of Banking (IDOB) is a state agency whose mission is to protect the interests of those doing business with Iowa chartered banks, licensed financial service providers, and licensed professionals through regulation that ensures safety, soundness, and adherence to laws and regulations. The IDOB consists of three functional areas: Bank Bureau, Finance Bureau, and Professional Licensing Bureau. Each functional area has three primary functions: Licensing/Chartering, Examining/Auditing, and consumer complaint investigation. The IDOB has provided funding for teacher scholarships to the Jump$tart national conference and is a proud member of the Iowa Jump$tart.

This member of the Iowa Jump$tart coalition is represented by Rod Reed and Mary Sandvig. Rod Reed is currently the treasurer of Iowa Jump$tart. He has served on many committees and positions, including president. Rod was president when the Iowa Jump$tart Coalition received the State Coalition of the Year Award from the National Jump$tart Coalition in 2011. At the IDOB he is the bureau chief of the Finance and Professional Licensing Bureaus. Rod and his wife have two sons (one a recent ISU graduate employed as an engineer in Des Moines and the other still a student at ISU). Rod is a graduate of ISU. He and his family are proud supporters of ISU.

Mary is currently the president of Iowa Jump$tart and has participated in several committees for over 10 years, especially with web content.  She has been with the IDOB as a systems analyst and developer for a little over 13 years. Her interests are quite varied. Two children, ages five and seven, keep her on the move. She loves music and is the drummer and marketing manager of the Iowa Falls-based variety band, the “Mudpuppies.”
