Denise Viola Monahan has joined M&T Bank following a 32-year career at PNC.

A deeply rooted community advocate and New Jersey resident, Monahan has an extensive track record, serving on various boards and organizations in Southern New Jersey, that have included Ronald McDonald House, Chamber of Commerce Southern New Jersey, and Catholic Schools Pa rtnership in Camden to name a few. Monahan also served as a member on the Board of Trustees at Saint Joseph's University, where she remains actively involved. Monahan is a previously named Woman of Distinction with the Girl Scouts of Southern/Central New Jersey, Philadelphia Business Journal, and NJBIZ.

Monahan has a strong passion for education which she self-identifies as her platform and doesn't plan to be any less involved in the community than she has been for decades. Monahan states, "I have always been all about the people. That's who I am, a person with and for others and being of service to the community. Once you give and you get involved, it becomes part of your fabric and you can't imagine your life without it. To me, not getting involved is just not an option." 
As Administrative Vice President, Group Manager, Commercial Banking at M&T Bank, Denise will manage the Southern New Jersey and Philadelphia territories.
