As Regional President, he will lead the effort to provide customers in the market with access to the full range of PNC’s services and capabilities, in addition to delivering on a commitment to developing a close connection with the local community. Prohaska’s appointment represents the first step in the implementation of PNC’s previously announced plans to establish its regional president model in the state of California, where it already supports a wide range of clients, and as it prepares for the pending acquisition of BBVA USA Bancshares and the coast-to-coast national franchise it will create.

Prior to Wells Fargo, he also had senior manager responsibilities for credit approval in the entertainment division and mortgage area of another nationally branded financial institution. Prohaska comes to PNC as the senior leader for a market where the bank currently serves clients through several business areas, including business credit, commercial and residential mortgage, as well as the Fortis Advisors business unit.
