December 10, 2014, 07:37 AM

Citizens Commercial Banking, the commercial banking division of Citizens Financial Group, announced today that Daniel K. Fitzpatrick has been named head of the bank’s National Mid-Corporate and Industry Verticals business.

Fitzpatrick, a commercial banking executive with more than 25 years of experience, will continue to serve as Citizens Bank president in Pennsylvania, New Jersey and Delaware. He also serves on Citizens Financial Group’s Executive Leadership Group, the company’s senior leadership team.

“Dan has a proven track record of bringing great ideas to clients and executing those ideas as a trusted financial partner,” said Steve Woods, Head of Corporate Banking for Citizens Commercial Banking. “I’m confident his leadership will help take our National Mid-Corporate team to the next level and will help us sharpen our focus on delivering expertise to clients in our Industry Verticals business.”

“This is a very exciting time for Citizens and I look forward to working with the National Mid-Corporate and Industry Verticals teams to expand the business and help our clients across the country achieve their financial goals,” said Fitzpatrick.

In August, Citizens announced the national expansion of its Mid-Corporate team and the national launch of Industry Verticals in high-growth sectors such as health care, technology and franchise finance. As part of that expansion, Citizens has hired teams of experienced commercial bankers across its traditional New England, Mid-Atlantic and Midwestern markets and also in the following markets: Atlanta, Washington, DC, Charlotte, NC, Dallas and Los Angeles.

A native of Philadelphia, Fitzpatrick is a former chairman of the Greater Philadelphia Chamber of Commerce and serves on its executive committee and its CEO Council for Growth. His chamber leadership is marked by a focus on growth in sectors such as manufacturing and energy. As chairman of the CEO Council’s Human Capital Working Group, Fitzpatrick has focused on the development of programs and initiatives aimed at workforce development in order to facilitate economic growth and employment opportunity.

Active in the community, he is a member of the board of trustees of La Salle University and a member of the executive committee of the Philadelphia Convention and Visitors Bureau. He is a member of the board of directors of the Wistar Institute and the Allegheny Conference on Community Development, among other organizations.

Formerly known as RBS Citizens, Citizens Commercial Banking is the commercial banking division of Providence, R.I.-based Citizens Financial Group.
