El Nokali joins First National Bank to direct interest rate sales, marketing
The announcement was issued recently from the company's Pittsburgh headquarters.
El Nokali said that he was attracted to FNB’s progressive style and pace.
“FNB has a reputation as a company that is always looking for the right ways to grow and evolve,” El Nokali said. “This is an exciting opportunity to be part of that development through the introduction of a high-end financial service that is typically only available at much larger institutions.”
A Pittsburgh native, El Nokali comes from Bank of America Merrill Lynch, where he guided corporate customers in the area of hedge funds. In his newly created role for FNB, he will consult with institutional clients and act as liaison between internal departments to guarantee clients a secure structure for their investments.
“At FNB, we believe our clients are best served through a holistic approach to the banking relationship,” Robert Moorehead, FNB’s chief wholesale banking officer, said. “With Ahmed on board, we round out an already robust commercial banking product set with sophisticated interest rate hedging capabilities. His extensive experience in capital markets, both domestically and internationally, puts him in an excellent position to understand and meet client needs in a variety of industries.”
El Nokali earned a bachelor's degree in economics from Princeton University and an MBA from Carnegie Mellon University.
