MUFG Union Bank named Sandy Walia regional president for Northern California and the Pacific Northwest Branch Banking division. Walia will oversee a network of 111 branches and nearly 600 employees in the region. In addition, she will continue to serve as managing director and head of Client Services for PurePoint Financial, which is a division of MUFG Union Bank.
Walia, who joined PurePoint Financial in August of 2018, has more than 20 years of experience in the consumer banking industry. Prior to PurePoint, she served as consumer banking market manager for Bank of America, where she led multiple financial center locations.
Walia has held various roles within the retail banking space, gradually working her way up from bank teller to senior vice president and area president at Wells Fargo. While there, she was responsible for setting strategic direction and leading the community banking division across 54 branches and nearly 1,000 employees.
“In just over a year, Sandy has already made a positive impact on the PurePoint team,” said Union Bank Head of Branch Banking Elaine Genevro. “This dual-capacity role allows us the opportunity to leverage and embed best practices that Sandy has helped identify, drive and implement within PurePoint into our Union Bank franchise.”
Locally, Walia has been involved with A Place Called Home, The Alzheimer’s Association of Greater Los Angeles and Five Acres.
