City National Bank Bolsters Presence in Nashville, Atlanta

City National Bank is continuing to expand its footprint on vital music hubs Nashville and Atlanta. The company today (Sept. 27) announced four senior bankers joining the CNB team. They include Nashville-based Brian Austin, senior vice president and senior relationship manager, and Candie Brooks, vice president and senior account manager. Both will tailor financial advice and service to high-net-worth families and their businesses.

In Atlanta, Maura McKenna and Gregory Shakes join as senior vice president and senior relationship manager, and vice president and credit officer, respectively.

Both offices were opening in 2011 and have seen rapid growth, making CNB a leader in entertainment banking. In Nashville in particular, CNB now claims more than 90 percent of business managers and recently announced plans to add 4,000-square-feet of office space.

Atlanta, meanwhile, “represents a diverse and growing economy,” said Rich McCune, senior vice president and regional team manager of Entertainment Banking. “We’re thrilled to contribute to the vibrant entertainment community, and look forward to serving entrepreneurs and their businesses as we deepen our level of service in the region.”

City National is a subsidiary of Royal Bank of Canada with $46.9 billion in assets and 72 offices, including 17 full-service regional centers, in Southern California, the San Francisco Bay Area, Nevada, New York City, Nashville, Atlanta and Minneapolis. In addition, the company and its investment affiliates manage or administer $60.8 billion in client investment assets.
