Report: Trump feeling out BankUnited's Kanas for possible post

Members of President-elect Donald Trump's transition team conducted multiple talks with BankUnited Inc. head John Kanas, in a possible move to tap the outgoing exec for a post in the Trump administration, The Wall Street Journal reported Dec. 27.

Kanas, who will step down as president and CEO but will continue as chairman of the Miami Lakes, Fla.-based company on Jan. 1, 2017, told the Journal that while he has had several informal conversations with Trump transition team officials, no specific post was discussed. The news outlet added that Kanas' name has been floated by industry officials as a possible candidate for comptroller of the currency.

Kanas also has connections to investor Wilbur Ross, who was a major part of BankUnited's recapitalization in 2009 — and who is now expected to be named secretary of commerce once Trump assumes office.
