Peoples Bancorp.'s James Cairns Takes over at the ABA Helm


Smith, Franklin L., American Banker


NEW YORK -- James G. Cairns Jr., president of the People Bancorp., Seattle, was installed as president of the American Bankers Association Monday during its annual convention.

Mr. Cairns, 47, who was ABA president-elect for the last year, succeeds C. Robert Brenton, president of Brenton Banks Inc., Des Moines, Iowa.

Mr. Brenton will serve as a member of the executive council and a director of the association. In the past, the outgoing ABA president became chairman of the ABA council, but that leadership body has been dismantled.

Donald T. Senterfitt, 64, vice chairman of Sun Banks Inc., Orlando, Fla., is the ABA president-elect.

Elected ABA treasurer for a second tern was Harry R. Mitiguy, 61, president and chief executive officer of the Howard Bank, Burlington, Vt.

Mr. Cairns has served as a member of the ABA's executive committee, board of directors, and the ABA council. He is also past chairman of the association's payment systems policy board, a former member of the ABA government relations council, and a director of the Washington Bankers Association and the Clearing House Association of Seattle.

Mr. Cairns joined People National Bank in 1963, became senior vice president in charge of operations and subsidiary administration in 1972, and was named president in 1979.

A graduate of the University of Washington in Seattle, Mr. Cairns has been an officer or director of many community organizations in Seattle, focusing on industrial development, tourism, and community celebration. He takes pride in his bank's friendly image, evident in its slogan, "Member FDIC and the human race."

Mr. Senterfitt, the president-elect, has served four year on the ABA council. He has also served on numerous key committees, including the taxation committee, and on ABA task forces on the uniform consumer credit code and state taxation of banks. He served as ABA state vice president for Florida in 1981-82, was the 1982-83 Region III member for the ABA board, and has served on the ABA board's budget committee.

Mr. Senterfitt joined Sun Bank in 1964 as a director. In 1980 he was named vice chairman of the company that is now Sun Banks Inc.

Mr. Senterfitt served on the board of directors of the Florida Bankers Association and has been active in organizating downtown development in Orlando. He is a graduate of Carson Newman College in Tennessee and holds a law degree from George Washington University in Washington, D. …
