December 04, 2018, 08:00 AM

Santander Bank announced that it has named David Harnisch Head of Commercial Banking. Harnisch joined Santander in 2017 as the Head of Underwriting, Portfolio Management and Commercial Strategy, and will now be responsible for leading and growing its commercial banking division. Harnisch succeeds Robert Rubino, who recently left the bank.

"David has been instrumental in shaping our commercial banking strategy and in leading the transformation within the division that is now translating into sustainable growth and client impact," said Duke Dayal, President and CEO of Santander Bank. "His broad experience in client management, execution, underwriting and building and leading high-performing teams will help us continue to meet the needs of our clients and grow this business. I look forward to him leading the on-going transformation and momentum in the Commercial Bank."

Prior to joining Santander, Harnisch held a variety of leadership roles in the banking and finance industry, and was Executive Vice President and Head of Commercial Banking Underwriting and Portfolio Management at Citizens Financial Group. He holds a BA in Political Science from Boston College and an MBA from NYU Stern School of Business. 

In 2018, Santander has expanded its Commercial Banking coverage in the U.S. with new bankers in the Southeast, Midwest and Southwest regions of the country. Santander Bank has also added specialized banking, foreign corporate banking, technology, media and telecommunications (TMT) banking, and a family office practice to better serve the unique needs of its clients.
