CINCINNATI, June 7, 2022 – PNC Bank announced Kay Geiger will retire as regional president for Greater Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky effective July 31 following a distinguished 44-year career in financial services. Succeeding her will be long-time local PNC executive Warren Weber, a 25-year banking veteran who most recently served as Corporate Banking market executive for PNC Bank in Cincinnati.
Since joining PNC Bank and becoming regional president in 2008, Geiger has been instrumental in delivering PNC’s Main Street bank model throughout Greater Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky, expertly leading the company’s banking and charitable activities locally and fueling the growth of PNC’s market presence. During her celebrated banking career, Geiger has held senior level roles with other local banks and at PNC, impacted thousands of employees through expanding internal diversity and inclusion initiatives, including employee business resource group support and mentoring hundreds of employees. Several initiatives that Geiger started were implemented across PNC’s national footprint.
Geiger has served the communities where she has lived through board leadership ranging from economic development, education, entrepreneurship, healthcare, social services and arts and culture. She serves on the boards of the Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport, Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center, Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center Foundation, Cincinnati Center City Development Corporation (3CDC), Cincinnati Business Committee, Cintrifuse, OneNKY Alliance, the Regional Economic Development Initiative (REDI), University of Cincinnati Integrative Health Institute, Anthony Muñoz Foundation and Commercial Club of Cincinnati. Geiger is also a member of the Federal Reserve Bank of Cleveland's Cincinnati Business Advisory Committee. She previously served on the boards of Miami University, Cincinnati USA Regional Chamber, Cincinnati Art Museum, CincyTech, Playhouse in the Park, Ursuline Academy, YWCA and the Zoological Society of Cincinnati. Geiger also served on the board of the United Way of Greater Cincinnati and was Chair of the 2011 United Way Community Campaign.
In honor of Geiger’s community leadership and professional accomplishments, she has been recognized as a YWCA Career Woman of Achievement, The Geier Family Award for United Way Leadership, Miami University John E. Dolibois Award, American Jewish Committee Civic Achievement Award, University of Cincinnati Distinguished Service Award and the Metropolitan Club Bridge Award. Earlier this year, the Urban League of Greater Southwestern Ohio honored Geiger for her impact on the Cincinnati community by her words, deeds and actions.
“We are grateful for Kay’s tremendous leadership and accomplishments at PNC over the span of her career,” said Scott Swanson, PNC Office of the Regional Presidents Midwest territory executive. “Not only has Kay been a tireless advocate for our clients and employees, but she has also fostered a culture of collaboration and inclusion at PNC in Greater Cincinnati and across the region. We will miss Kay tremendously for all that she did and who she is, but wish her nothing but the best as she moves to this next chapter.”
Weber, a Louisville native, has lived in Greater Cincinnati for more than 30 years. He brings a diverse set of skills and perspectives to the PNC Regional Presidents organization. After graduating from Indiana University, Weber worked at PNC Bank in a variety of roles including credit, portfolio management, relationship management, workout and credit approval roles in predominantly Middle Market and Corporate Finance. Weber later rejoined PNC in 2008 and has led a team of relationship managers and support personnel serving private and public companies. He also serves on the board of directors at the Cincinnati USA Regional Chamber, Cincinnati Regional Business Committee and is chairman of the Freestore Foodbank board. He is a past president of the Easterseals board and serves on the business advisory committee at the University of Cincinnati’s Carl H. Lindner School of Business.
“Warren is the perfect leader to succeed Kay,” Swanson said. “We are confident his leadership and focused involvement in the community will help fuel PNC’s Main Street banking approach and continued growth across the Greater Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky region.”
