JORGE GONZALEZ

PRESIDENT & CEO, CITY NATIONAL BANK OF FLORIDA, CORAL GABLES

City National Bank, founded in Miami Beach in 1946, is one of the three largest Florida-based banks. CNB has more than $16 billion in assets, more than 30 banking centers and nearly 900 team members across the state. In 2018, CNB acquired TotalBank. Gonzalez came to the bank 10 years ago and says he “saw an opportunity for CNB to be the right size, positioned between large national banks and smaller community banks.” CNB also operates a specialty leasing and financing subsidiary, BciCapital.
