City National Bank hired veteran banker Nate Pusey as a senior vice president and commercial banking team lead.

Pusey and his team will work out of City National’s Boston-based loan production office and will focus on the financial needs of midsized businesses and entrepreneurs in the Boston and New England region.

“Our expansion in Boston reflects the strong demand for high-quality service and sophisticated financing in the region,” said Zach Mayo, Eastern regional manager of commercial banking. “I’m confident our new team will provide exceptional financial solutions to the entrepreneurs and businesses in this exciting and dynamic market.”

Pusey has more than 30 years of financial services experience working with midsized businesses in the New England region. He previously served as a managing director and market leader for Commerce Bank & Trust in Boston.
