Prior to becoming the first female CEO of City National Bank in Los Angeles, Kelly Coffey was living in New York City and working at J.P. Morgan for 20 years. Known as the “bank to the stars,” City National has a rich history of working with the entertainment industry, having famously helped Frank Sinatra with ransom money in 1963 when his son was kidnapped. Coffey credits her large Irish-Italian family for giving her the strength she needed to succeed in a male-dominated industry, as she grew up going to work with her grandfather at his Pennsylvania community bank. Coffey gives host Giselle Fernandez her thoughts on the current financial situation in the U.S. surrounding the unprecedented COVID-19 pandemic and remains optimistic that the Biden administration will get us back on track.
