Citizens Names Lisa Murray Massachusetts President

PROVIDENCE, R.I. — Citizens Financial Group named Lisa Murray its Massachusetts president, succeeding Jerry Sargent, who will continue to oversee New England and upstate New York as Citizens’ Northeast Region executive.

Murray, who has been at Citizens for 24 years, leads a team that provides strategic and financial advice to not-for-profit organizations and professional-services clients such as legal, accounting, and consulting firms. As Massachusetts president, she will represent Citizens in an official capacity across the Commonwealth and continue to report to Sargent.

“Massachusetts is a very important market for Citizens, and I am looking forward to having Lisa play a greater role in our leadership team here,” Sargent said. “She already serves as a tireless advocate in the community and as a trusted advisor to her clients. It is a very exciting time for Citizens as we continue to grow and add capabilities to better serve our clients.”

Murray has been working with the Pine Street Inn, the largest homeless-services provider in New England, for more than 20 years and is currently a member of its board of directors. She is also a member of the Massachusetts Business Roundtable and the Mass Taxpayers Forum, and is on the board of the Economic Development Advisory Committee in her hometown of Lexington. She is a graduate of the University of Connecticut.
