We’ve seen the name over the ballpark on the North Shore, walked past the state-of-the art new headquarters downtown, or have frequented one of the many branches that always seems to be a stone’s throw away from anywhere you are in the region. It’s hard not to notice PNC Bank’s presence in Pittsburgh.

Being one of the largest banks in the United States with millions of customers, PNC Bank is a stalwart in the financial services space – but it is just as susceptible to the dynamic new changes taking over the banking industry. From a changing regulatory environment, new innovative competitors, to delivering the best experience possible for its customers – PNC is constantly tackling with these strategic issues on a daily basis. Nowhere else is this more prevalent than in Retail Banking. So who better to discuss these topics than the woman responsible for PNC’s present success in Retail Banking and its future path?

In this PYP Talk, PYP is excited to have one of PNC’s top executives, the Head of Retail Banking and Chief Customer Officer, Karen Larrimer share her thoughts on these strategic questions, her path to leadership, PNC’s role in the community overall and more. Recognized as one of the most powerful women in Banking by American Banker for the past three years – Karen has held various leadership positions throughout her career collecting multiple accolades while being an active member in the community as well (full bio below).

Join us for this unique opportunity to hear from one of the most influential minds in finance and learn about a dynamic industry that has a significant role in the Pittsburgh economy.

Light hors d'oeuvres and a cash bar will be provided.
