CoBank, a cooperative bank serving agribusinesses, rural infrastructure providers and Farm Credit associations throughout the United States, has announced that Miranda Stokes has been named Regional Vice President, Electric Distribution.

Stokes comes to CoBank from the Global Banking and Markets division of Bank of America Merrill Lynch in Chicago.  During her tenure with Bank of America Merrill Lynch, Stokes led and participated in commercial transactions with a wide range of consumer product, industrial and retail customers. Stokes, who will join the bank at the end of June, succeeds Candace Roper, who will be moving to a new position in CoBank’s Singapore office as a lead relationship manager with the bank’s Agricultural Export Finance Division.

“Miranda brings a diverse background and deep experience as a professional banker to what is already an outstanding team,” said Paul A. Narduzzo, Senior Vice President and manager of CoBank’s Electric Distribution & Rural Water Banking Division. “We’re thrilled to have her join our organization and look forward to her contributions to CoBank and the rural electric cooperatives we serve.”

Stokes joined Bank of America in 2002 and was promoted to Director, Corporate Banking Retail and Industrial Industries in 2009. She holds a bachelor's degree from Notre Dame and an MBA from the Olin School of Business at Washington University in St. Louis.

In her new role, Stokes will oversee customer relationships in the division’s western region, which includes electric distribution cooperatives in 18 states and a loan portfolio totaling approximately $3.0 billion.

“I’m excited to be joining CoBank’s electric distribution team and look forward to working with rural electric cooperatives to meet their needs and help them continue to serve their members,” Stokes said.
