About City National Bank

One of the most profitable publicly traded banks in the U.S., City Holding Company was ranked in the top 10 in its peer group in the country.

City National Bank

As City National Bank grows, it is maintaining its identity as a strong, full-service community bank. We offer a range of checking and savings products for both consumer and business customers. Other popular products include competitive mortgages, home equity lines of credit, and consumer and business loans. The Trust and Wealth Management division rounds out the financial offerings available for individuals, families and businesses.


City National employees maintain strong relationships with customers and are in tune with the needs of local citizens. In response to local demand, for instance, we were the first in our markets to introduce an innovative checking option, Bounce Back Checking, for individuals who have been denied the opportunity to open a checking account and are looking for a fresh start.


City National also launched Community Hero Checking, which honors current and retired military personnel, firefighters, police officers, medical professionals and teachers by providing special account benefits.


City National is best known for its Simply Free eChecking account. We were the first bank in our region to offer totally free checking. Today, as other banks are discontinuing free checking, it remains our most popular checking option.


The bank is among the strongest and most financially sound in the nation. City Holding Company was ranked in the top ten of the Best Banks in America in its peer group by Bank Director Magazine's 2014 Bank Performance Scorecard. Because the company has significant resources – strong earnings, significant capital and considerable talent – we are well positioned to grow beyond our existing geographic, product and customer boundaries. Also, being a community bank, we support our local communities financially. City National contributes generously to the United Way and many other charitable, cultural and civic causes.


Headquartered in Charleston, WV, the bank has 85 locations throughout West Virginia, Kentucky, Virginia and Ohio. Founded in 1957, City Holding today employs approximately 875 professionals.
