Citi Private Bank announced Thursday the appointed of Peter Charrington as the Chief Executive Officer of its North American business.

Charrington, the current head of the Private Bank’s businesses in the United Kingdom, Israel and Monaco, will be responsible for all private banking activities in the United States and Canada.

Our North American clients are increasingly global in their investment orientation and to be the client’s trusted wealth adviser inevitably demands global capabilities, said Mr. Deepak Sharma, Chairman of Citi Private Bank. Peter’s international experience and client skills will certainly help to bring to bear the power of the Citi Private Bank’s global franchise on our clients.

Citi Private Bank currently serves approximately 10,000 clients through more than 150 bankers across 25 offices in U.S. and Canada alone.
