PNC’s EVP Partners with Communities to Deliver Financial Education to All

A member of the PNC team since 2006, Ina Murray served has as retail banking market manager in St. Louis and regional manager in the Northern Virginia region before being named executive vice president and retail market manager for the Chicago–Wisconsin markets. Under her leadership, the bank achieved double-digit growth and created highly engaged, customer-focused teams. She excels at sales management—particularly in key growth markets, where she creates and develops local strategies for business development and community-based initiatives that support financial education.

Ina spent many of her 27 years in the banking business with Washington Mutual Bank in Southern California. When Washington Mutual entered the Chicago region, she was selected as a regional manager to help launch one of the largest market entries in banking history. In less than 36 months, the bank’s retail team successfully opened 167 new locations in Chicago.

“Being a woman in my profession has been rewarding,” said Ina, “as I have an opportunity to do what I love every day. I am fortunate to be able to inspire, coach, develop and mentor employees to achieve their aspirations.  As my team is committed to helping our customers achieve financial wellbeing, I also feel that my work is meaningful.”

Her participation in various community initiatives include her current role on the board of directors of All Chicago, an organization that provides immediate resources with long-term housing solutions to help people in need of housing and those trying to keep their homes. Ina also partnered with community and nonprofit organization leaders to conduct financial education workshops. The program gives PNC the opportunity to work with faith leaders and other strategic partners in Chicago communities to promote financial education and financial well-being.

Her community outreach leadership efforts have earned several service awards, including Community Reinvestment Act recognition for outstanding work in the South Central communities of Los Angeles and Chicago.
