Conference of State Bank Supervisors
General Counsel
Washington, DC, USA

John "Buz" Gorman is General Counsel for the Conference of State Bank Supervisors (CSBS). He is responsible for analyzing proposals and legislation impacting the state banking system and heads CSBS's legal department, providing support across CSBS and its affiliated organizations.

Gorman joined CSBS in 1996, previously serving as Vice President and Legislative Counsel. He has been a key figure in advancing CSBS's legal and public policy efforts, and has helped to give state banking departments a stronger voice in Washington. As a member of the CSBS legislative team, Gorman worked with Congress on behalf of state banking departments to lay the blueprint and the eventual passage of the Financial Services Regulatory Relief Amendments Act of 2006, a landmark bill that gave to state regulators a vote on the Federal Financial Institutions Examination Council, and helped to improve supervision of multi-state, state-chartered banks. 

Prior to joining CSBS, Gorman spent 10 years on Capitol Hill working for Senator Connie Mack, which included two years in the House of Representatives. He advised the Senator on financial and environmental issues and served as the Senator's liaison to the Banking Committee.

Gorman received a J.D. from Catholic University and a B.S. in Business Management from the University of South Florida. He is a native of the Washington, D.C. metro area and lives in Philadelphia, with his wife and two children.
