Previously, Gillan was the marketing director at Sussex Trust, Georgetown. He began his career there in the bank’s branch network in 1984.
Gillan is the incoming chairman of the Delaware Banker’s Association as well as a member of the Governor’s Council on Banking. Formerly, he served on the board for the YMCA of Delaware, and as the state representative on the Independent Community Bankers of America Board of Directors. Gillan graduated from the Stonier Graduate School of Banking in 1989. He received a CFP designation from the College of Financial Planning in Denver, Colo., and his bachelor’s degree from the University of Delaware.
The Federal Reserve Bank of Philadelphia helps formulate and implement monetary policy, supervises banks, and bank and savings and loan holding companies, and provides financial services to depository institutions and the federal government. It is one of the 12 regional Reserve Banks that, together with the Board of Governors in Washington, D.C., make up the Federal Reserve System.
