The Spain-United States Chamber of Commerce recently hosted an evening reception honoring City National Bank of Florida (CNB) as its first trustee member.
The event, which took place at CNB’s Brickell banking center, 1450 Brickell Ave., was attended by some 50 chamber members, business professionals and CNB officers. It was presided over by Spain-U.S. Chamber of Commerce president and board chair Emilio González.
González expressed appreciation to City National Bank for its involvement and formally recognized the bank as the chamber’s first trustee member.
City National Bank’s parent is Caja Madrid, one of Spain’s oldest and largest financial institutions.
“City National’s involvement in and support of the Spain-United States Chamber of Commerce is important to the bank’s business in the U.S. and Europe,” said Jorge Gonzalez, CNB president and CEO. “The chamber provides us with invaluable services that allow CNB to continue to grow domestically and abroad.”
A private, non-profit organization recognized by the Spanish Government, the Spain-United States Chamber of Commerce is dedicated to enhancing commercial ties between Spain and the U.S. Members remain committed to maintaining Florida as the natural linkage to the North American continent and keeping Spain at the cusp of Ibero-American affairs.
Since its founding in 1980, the chamber has served as a catalyst for the strengthening of businesses, investments and cultural ties between Spain and the United States Chamber and its more than 500 members.
