Pittsburgh-based banking giant PNC Bank, which operates 2,945 branches in 27 states, has named Gina Coleman as the company’s new Chief Diversity Officer. Coleman will succeed Marsha Jones, who led PNC’s diversity and inclusion for more than a decade before retiring on Jan. 1, 2022.
Jake Bekemeyer of the Detroit-based business journal DBusiness Magazine reported that “in her new role, Coleman will help develop strategies and programs that allow PNC to build and sustain a talented, diverse workforce while furthering a culture of inclusion. Alongside her role as CDO, she will serve as co-chair of the PNC Corporate Diversity Council to focus on embedding inclusion into every aspect of the organization.”
In a statement announcing Coleman’s appointment, William S. Demchak, chairman, president and CEO of PNC Bank, said, “PNC has long embraced diversity and inclusion as core values, and we are excited to have Gina in this role to be a partner in developing strategies that allow us to recruit, retain and advance diverse talent at PNC.”
