Two Dayton-area entrepreneurs have been named to the Cincinnati branch board of the Federal Reserve Bank of Cleveland, the bank said Thursday.

David Evans, president and chief executive of Dayton machining company TESSEC LLC, was appointed a director. So was Jenell Ross, president of Bob Ross Auto Group in Centerville.

The Fed Bank in Cleveland also named directors to its Pittsburgh branch.

Each Federal Reserve bank’s main office has a nine-member board of directors. Each Federal Reserve bank branch also has a five- or seven-member board of directors whose members offer input on local business conditions and their respective industries.

They also help to identify opportunities that connect the Federal Reserve to the general public, the Cleveland Fed said.

The Federal Reserve Bank of Cleveland is one of 12 regional reserve banks that with the Board of Governors in Washington comprise the Federal Reserve System.
