Robert G. Jones, the chairman of a bank in U.S. Vice President Mike Pence’s home state, is under White House consideration among other candidates to be nominated as a Federal Reserve governor, according to two people familiar with the selection process.

Jones is the chairman and chief executive of Evansville, Indiana-based Old National Bancorp, a publicly traded company. He served as a director on the board of the St. Louis Fed from 2008 to 2013, and on the Federal Advisory Council in 2007, a group of regional bankers that briefs the Fed Board in Washington on the economy and banking.
