New hires strengthen City National’s commercial banking capabilities.

City National Bank, America’s Premier Private and Business Bank®, announced today that it has hired Ginny Heine to lead its Commercial Banking team in the Greater Washington, D.C. area.

This team will deliver City National’s full complement of credit products, treasury management and investment services to middle-market businesses in the area.

“We’re proud to attract high-quality talent like Ginny and Maria to our growing team in Washington, D.C.,” said Zach Mayo, Eastern regional manager of City National’s Commercial Banking division. “Since we opened, the D.C. region has been extremely receptive to City National’s brand of commercial banking. Every day we’re talking with more entrepreneurs and business owners about City National’s exceptional level of service.”

In addition to Heine and Josephs, the team includes:

  • Christopher Ragheb, senior vice president, works directly with businesses and nonprofits to provide City National’s comprehensive financial solutions.
  • Phil Ayoub, vice president, has more than 10 years of commercial banking experience and delivers the bank’s full range of expertise to businesses.
  • Lorraine Bains, vice president, provides consultative expertise in treasury management process and cash flow analysis to businesses in the region.

“City National has a strong commitment to helping business owners grow and prosper,” said Heine. “I look forward to working with the outstanding team in Washington, D.C. to serve our valued clients.”

Heine has more than three decades of financial services experience in the Washington, D.C. area.

Active in the community, Heine serves on the board of TechLaw Holdings, which provides environmental consulting, and previously served on the boards of the National Kidney Foundation and Words&Music, a music ensemble in Northern Virginia. Heine is committed to giving back and has volunteered and served on committees for regional nonprofits, including Volunteer Emergency Families for Children (VEFC), ChildHelp, Easter Seals, United Way, Western Fairfax Christian Ministries (WFCM) and the Salvation Army. Professionally, she has been an active member of organizations such as the Professional Services Council, the National Defense Industrial Association, the Association for Corporate Growth, Women in Technology, Women in Business and Springboard 2000, among other organizations.
