Ohio banker Mooney joins Ford's board
Mooney has more than 35 years of experience in retail banking, commercial lending and real estate financing. On Ford's board, she will be on the audit and nominating and governance committees.
The addition of Mooney placed a third woman on Ford's board again following the May retirement of Ellen Marram, who had been CEO of Tropicana Beverage group and Nabisco.
Mooney, 64, has been chairman and CEO of KeyCorp in Cleveland since May 2011. She also has been on the bank holding company's board since 2006, having joined the company as vice chairman of Key Community Bank, Ford said.
Before KeyCorp, Mooney held senior positions at Alabama-based AmSouth Bancorporation, now known as Regions Financial Corp., and Bank One Corp., among other institutions.
"Beth is a proven leader with a wealth of experience and deep understanding of the financial industry," Executive Chairman Bill Ford said in a statement.
