Dale Klose will serve as the regional president, Terry D’Amore as head of Corporate Banking and Kim Herman as director of Client and Community Relations, effective immediately.
Earlier this year, PNC announced plans to expand its efforts in the area by introducing its local leadership model and hiring additional employees to serve large and middle market companies.

The team at Midland Loan Services is complemented by professionals in technology and operations, as well as PNC Mortgage in representing PNC in the region.
“The Kansas City metro area continues to be a bright spot for job growth. There is significant opportunity for PNC to support that growth with the delivery of corporate banking services,” said Lou Cestello, head of PNC Regional Markets. “Through our Midland Loan Services group we are already proud to call Kansas City home. Expanding our efforts to provide Main Street banking and financial solutions is a natural extension of our presence in the region.”
“Additionally, as we bring our locally-focused regional president business model to Kansas City, we look forward to further building on the philanthropic commitment to the community that our Midland team has in place,” Cestello added.
