Citizens Financial Group Appoints McCree as Senior Vice Chair

Citizens Financial Group (CFG) appointed Don McCree, head of commercial banking, as senior vice chair.

“This appointment recognizes Don’s strong performance and leadership since 2015 in driving the successful buildout of our commercial bank and instilling a strong customer-focused, collaborative culture at Citizens,” Bruce Van Saun, chairman and CEO of CFG, said. “He has been a true enterprise leader, active in our business resource groups, in helping with the startup private bank effort and in mentoring our next-level leadership.”

As head of commercial banking, McCree is responsible for all aspects of corporate and investment banking, including commercial lending, commercial real estate, capital markets and advisory, asset finance, treasury solutions and underwriting and portfolio management. He also oversees the commercial bank’s risk management, loan operations, and strategy and development functions, as well as its network of state presidents and region heads, who represent Citizens in multiple states that make up its footprint. McCree is a member of the Citizens executive committee.

McCree joined Citizens as vice chairman and head of commercial banking in September 2015 from JPMorgan Chase, where he held a number of senior leadership roles over 31 years, including co-head of corporate and investment banking; CEO of global treasury services; global head of credit origination, sales, trading and research; chief credit officer; and head of wholesale risk management.
