Christina Long

Senior Risk Management Consultant

Christina Long

Opportunities within the banking industry are boundless, even though we may not always feel that way. I am inspired to help our clients grow, remain relevant and find their voice in an ever-changing industry.


Christina has worked in the financial institutions industry since 2001, and she joined Eide Bailly after more than 12 years of experience in the Federal Reserve System's bank supervision and regulation function. As a commissioned examiner, she led and contributed to countless safety and soundness exams of community banks varying in size and complexity. At Eide Bailly, Christina provides guidance to senior management teams and boards of directors on how to identify, measure, monitor and control critical risks facing their institutions. With extensive training on regulatory requirements and procedures in evaluating the condition of financial institutions, Christina's background and knowledge enables her to provide a wide range of consulting services to assist financial institutions in managing the risks influencing the industry today.

If you didn't have advanced knowledge of Christina's regulatory background, you'd never guess she was a former bank examiner. She looks beyond the black and white, and she sees the gray. Christina has a very supportive, pragmatic, empathetic and unpretentious consulting style that clients greatly appreciate.

In the winter months, Christina loves to powder-chase for an epic day of snowboarding. After the snow melts, hiking to a secluded and picturesque lake surrounded by mountains fills her soul. And on those cold, rainy or overcast days, nothing beats curling up on the couch with a can't-put-down book and a spicy chai tea latte.
