“City National Bank is committed to helping businesses achieve financial success,” said David Cameron, senior vice president and head of business banking at City National. “Davi will provide exceptional service and sophisticated solutions to businesses in Long Island.”

Tserpelis has nearly 30 years of commercial lending and banking experience. She previously served as a senior vice president with Astoria Bank’s Long Island business banking team.

City National entered New York in 2002, primarily to serve entertainment and private banking clients, and has grown to serve entrepreneurs and their families, businesses, nonprofits and professional service firms throughout the region and last year the bank added a team of experienced commercial bankers in New York. In 2015, City National merged with Royal Bank of Canada, one of North America’s leading diversified financial services companies.

“City National has a long history of serving entrepreneurs and providing the best financial solutions. I’m very pleased to join City National’s team,” said Tserpelis. “I know the Long Island business community well, and look forward to helping business owners achieve financial success.”

Active in the community, she serves as the secretary of the board of directors for the Middle Market Alliance of Long Island, an organization that promotes middle market companies, professionals and dealmakers in the region. Tserpelis is also the vice president of the board of directors of The Book Fairies, a nonprofit organization dedicated to fostering children’s literacy in the New York area. Tserpelis also mentors undergraduate students and young professionals in their careers.

City National has expanded in other cities as well, including Minneapolis, Boston and the Crenshaw District in Los Angeles. The bank is also opening a Washington, D.C. office in early 2018.
