Tasnim Ghiawadwala to Head Citi Commercial Bank


Citi are pleased to announce the appointment of Tasnim Ghiawadwala as Head of Citi Commercial Bank (CCB).

Tasnim returns to Citi from Barclays, where she was Head of its Corporate Bank in the United Kingdom since 2018. She was previously with Citi for over 20 years, holding a number of regional management and CCB roles, including Head of Citi’s Commercial Bank in EMEA for nearly eight years. She was also a member of the EMEA Operating Committee.

Tasnim brings with her a deep experience in Commercial, Corporate, Consumer and Investment Banking, as well as a strong track record in driving business growth and transformation, and delivering superior results in periods of intense change.

Tasnim will help refresh the strategy and accelerate market growth for CCB, including the expansion of its digital platforms, in line with Citi’s overall Transformation efforts, driving client-centric solutions to differentiate Citi in this rapidly-evolving marketplace. She will work closely across all ICG businesses, working with product partners across the banks’ global network to deliver comprehensive solutions for its clients. Tasnim will also work closely with Citi’s Global Functions partners to ensure a holistic approach to strengthening its risk and control environment.

Tasnim succeeds Sunil Garg, who was recently appointed CEO of Citibank, N.A., and Chair of the Risk and Controls project group of Citi’s Transformation effort. She will start upon completion of her garden leave.
