Southern Shows Inc. President David Zimmerman has been named chairman of the Federal Reserve Bank of Richmond's Charlotte office.
He takes over the chairman's role -- a one-year term -- from Claude C. Lilly, dean of Clemson University's School of Business and Behavioral Science. Before that, Lilly had been dean of UNC-Charlotte's business school.
Zimmerman has served as a director of the Charlotte office since 2008. Southern Shows puts on large-scale events like the Southern Christmas Show.
The Richmond Fed also announced Friday that Christopher J. Estes, executive director of the North Carolina Housing Coalition, has been appointed to the Charlotte office's seven-member board of directors.
