New North America Head At Citi Private Bank

Following the elevation of Peter Charrington to the role of global head for Citi Private Bank, his North America role has been taken on by one of the firm's senior figures.

Citi Private Bank has appointed Tracey Brophy Warson as the new head of its North America business, taking over from Peter Charrington, who was recently named global head, as previously reported.

Warson will report to Charrington and be based in New York. She will be a member of the private bank’s global leadership team, it said in a statement today. She has nearly 30 years of experience working with ultra high net worth individuals, families and institutions. She was most recently Western Region Market Manager for Citi Private Bank in North America. In this role she oversaw ultra high net worth banking offices in Beverly Hills, Los Angeles, Orange County, Palo Alto, San Francisco, Phoenix and Seattle.

“Before joining Citi, Warson served as West Division executive for US Trust, Bank of America Private Wealth Management, where she built and ran the Western Region. Prior to joining US Trust, she was executive vice president and regional managing director of private client services at Wells Fargo Private Bank.

“Since joining Citi Private Bank in 2010, Tracey has done a remarkable job growing our footprint on the West Coast. Since that time, she has significantly increased revenues and [assets under management] and built an exceptional team of private bankers and specialists who are doing a superb job serving the fast growing number of ultra high net worth clients in that market,” Charrington said.

Citi Private Bank has $310 billion in global assets under management with 50 offices in 15 countries, serving clients across 139 countries.
