Benjamin K. Olson was quoted on October 1, 2018 in an American Banker article, “Remaking the FDIC by ripping up the rules,” which profiled the new chairman of the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp., Jelena McWilliams, and her plans for the corporation. The article stated, “In person, McWilliams appears open, never hesitating to answer questions. She often adds personal stories, rare for financial regulators who are often perceived as guarded. McWilliams' compassion and ability to work with people are what colleagues say make her stand out from many other regulators."

Olson added, “Anyone who’s met Jelena would say what is most impressive about her is not just that she’s incredibly smart and hard working, it’s the fact that Jelena is able to combine all of that with really exceptional interpersonal and communication skills.”
