LOS ANGELES, May 30, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — City National Bank® today released its 2022 “Our Impact” report that outlines the significant progress the bank made last year to address economic, social and environmental issues. The theme of this year’s report, “What Matters Most,” illustrates City National’s continued efforts to help its clients, colleagues and communities thrive and prosper. In the report, the company also reinforces its enhanced commitment to community investments that support economic growth and sustainability.

“We know City National can only be as strong as the communities we serve, and we believe we have a responsibility to help strengthen them,” said Kelly Coffey, chief executive officer of City National. “I am honored to lead a company where the colleagues work so tirelessly to support organizations that make our communities healthier and more equitable for everyone.”
