In June, PNC announced the completion of its acquisition of BBVA USA Bancshares, Inc., making PNC the fifth largest U.S. commercial banking organization in the nation. Growth in assets and geography brings PNC’s established regional leadership model to the center of PNC’s national expansion strategy, introducing PNC’s Main Street bank approach to new customers and communities across the country.

Together, these local executives will drive expansion by leveraging the full depth and breadth of PNC’s products and services including Retail Banking, Corporate & Institutional Banking and Asset Management.

“We are thrilled that PNC’s market leadership teams will be able to deliver our Main Street model to the expanded communities we now serve,” said Louis R. Cestello, executive vice president and head of PNC’s Regional Markets. “Our local delivery of products, services and expertise guides everything we do to support our customers and the community.”
