Pellegrino brings almost 30 years of experience into the company and was most recently the regional president and head of the Pacific Northwest region for Bank of New York Mellon Wealth Management. Prior to that, she had executive roles at the private asset unit of Banc One Securities and Bank One Investment Management. In her new role she will be based in Seattle and will report to Tracey Warson, the regional executive for the West Coast area.
"The Pacific Northwest is extremely important to Citi Private Bank and we are pleased to welcome someone with Nancy's experience and deep roots in the region to lead our franchise here," said Warson. "We look forward to significantly expanding our presence in this market by continuing to provide our clients with global private banking solutions, including access to capital, innovative investment opportunities and access to Citi's platform and capabilities around the world."
Pellegrino is expected to focus on the region's ultra high net worth clientele.
