Valley National Bancorp, the holding company for Valley National Bank, appointed John P. Regan as Senior Executive Vice President—Chief Risk Officer effective June 24, 2024. Regan will succeed Raja A. Dakkuri, who is leaving Valley to pursue another professional opportunity outside the banking industry. Dakkuri will remain in the position until Mr. Regan joins to ensure an orderly transition. Regan will report directly to Ira Robbins, Chief Executive Officer and Chairman of Valley. In his role, Mr. Regan will oversee all aspects of Valley’s enterprise risk management program.

Regan is a veteran banking industry audit and risk management executive with over 30 years of experience leading banking teams for global, regional, and community banks. Mr. Regan is a former Senior Partner of KPMG LLP, where he was responsible for coordinating KPMG’s New York Metro Banking Audit Practice, and was also a lead partner for various global and regional banks until his departure from KPMG in 2015. Most recently, Regan served as Chief Audit Officer for the New York banking operations of Industrial and Commercial Bank of China from 2022 until 2024. Prior to that, Regan held the position of Chief Audit Executive at Investors Bancorp from 2016 until 2022.

“We are extremely excited to welcome John to Valley,” said Robbins. “John’s extensive experience working with regional and global banking organizations positions him well as our next Chief Risk Officer. His perspective will be immensely valuable as we continue to build on the robust risk management framework that has underpinned our success, while simultaneously fostering a culture of risk awareness and ownership. John has the experience, leadership capabilities, and strategic vision to contribute to the next phase of Valley’s evolution.”

On his appointment, Regan commented, “I am delighted to be appointed Chief Risk Officer of Valley. I look forward to working alongside Ira, the management team, and our other stakeholders as we continue to uphold Valley’s long-standing track record of prudent and responsible risk management.”
