Miami bank named one of the country’s best to work for

Though the pandemic has pushed the banking industry to its limits, City National Bank did whatever it could to keep employees engaged while serving its customers. And it shows in its latest honor.

American Banker recently recognized the bank on its list of 2020 Best Banks to Work For, ranking in several areas, including role satisfaction, corporate culture and communications, pay and benefits and other categories. The compile the list, American Banker analyzes employees surveys and employer reports on benefits and policies with Best Companies Group.

Billing itself as Florida’s big bank alternative, City National has grown with two acquisitions in two years, increasing its presence to 30 banking centers and more than 800 employees. CNB, which has $18 billion in assets, also earned a spot on the list in 2016 and 2017, showcasing its people-focused culture. This year’s honor comes amid challenging times for CNB and its employees, during which the bank helped keep employees healthy through initiatives such as the CNB Strong program, which included concierge health services and care packages as well as “Mindful Mondays” where groups engage in virtual meditation classes together.

“We are honored to be recognized by American Banker as one of the Best Banks to Work For,” said City National Bank’s Vice Chairman and CEO Jorge Gonzalez, who recently ranked among the country’s top 25 CEOs for diversity by Comparably. “This achievement reflects the collective efforts of our team to achieve an outstanding firm culture. I am grateful to our dedicated workforce, the main driver of our success, especially during a year that has relentlessly challenged us as an institution and as individuals. I know the lessons we have learned this year will guide us to be an even stronger team in the future.”

Full results of this year’s program are available at the American Banker website and in the November 2020 issue of American Banker Magazine.

Drew Limsky joined Lifestyle Media Group in August 2020 as Editor-in-Chief of South Florida Business & Wealth. His first issue of SFBW, October 2020, heralded a reimagined structure, with new content categories and a slew of fresh visual themes. “As sort of a cross between Forbes and Robb Report, with a dash of GQ and Vogue,” Limsky says, “SFBW reflects South Florida’s increasingly sophisticated and dynamic business and cultural landscape.”

Limsky, an avid traveler, swimmer and film buff who holds a law degree and Ph.D. from New York University, likes to say, “I’m a doctor, but I can’t operate—except on your brand.” He wrote his dissertation on the nonfiction work of Joan Didion. Prior to that, Limsky received his B.A. in English, summa cum laude, from Emory University and earned his M.A. in literature at American University in connection with a Masters Scholar Award fellowship.

Limsky came to SFBW at the apex of a storied career in journalism and publishing that includes six previous lead editorial roles, including for some of the world’s best-known brands. He served as global editor-in-chief of Lexus magazine, founding editor-in-chief of custom lifestyle magazines for Cadillac and Holland America Line, and was the founding editor-in-chief of Modern Luxury Interiors South Florida. He also was the executive editor for B2B magazines for Acura and Honda Financial Services, and he served as travel editor for Conde Nast. Magazines under Limsky’s editorship have garnered more than 75 industry awards.

He has also written for many of the country’s top newspapers and magazines, including The New York Times, Washington Post, Los Angeles Times, Miami Herald, Boston Globe, USA Today, Worth, Robb Report, Afar, Time Out New York, National Geographic Traveler, Men’s Journal, Ritz-Carlton, Elite Traveler, Florida Design, Metropolis and Architectural Digest Mexico. His other clients have included Four Seasons, Acqualina Resort & Residences, Yahoo!, American Airlines, Wynn, Douglas Elliman and Corcoran. As an adjunct assistant professor, Limsky has taught journalism, film and creative writing at the City University of New York, Pace University, American University and other colleges.
