MUFG Union Bank, announced today that Policy Making Officer and Head of Transaction Banking for the Americas, Ranjana Clark, has been named to American Banker Magazine’s annual list of the “Top 25 Most Powerful Women in Banking.” She leads the bank’s Treasury Management and Global Trust and Custody businesses, and the company-wide digital channels. Based in San Francisco, Ms. Clark is also a member of MUFG’s Executive Committee for the Americas, the primary policy-making group for the bank.

“All of the women in our rankings — Ranjana included — are leaders at their companies and are truly exceptional at their jobs,” said American Banker executive Editor Bonnie McGeer. “Ranjana is also active in the industry, and in her community. Our hope is that by calling attention to such outstanding women, we can help amplify efforts by the industry to diversify its still largely male-dominated senior ranks.”

In naming Ms. Clark to the Top 25 list, the magazine cited her role leading transaction banking efforts for MUFG in the United States, Canada, and Latin America, where she’s responsible for sales, product development, client delivery, strategy, and risk management. She oversaw year-over-year improvements in total deposits and revenue, and restructured the group to align for increased flexibility and growth, focusing on a streamlined onboarding process for new clients.

“Ranjana is a strong leader, collaborator, and mentor,” said Stephen Cummings, President and Chief Executive Officer for MUFG Union Bank. “She surpasses her business goals every year, and finds innovative ways to serve our clients while inspiring our colleagues. This honor is a welcome and well-deserved recognition.”

Prior to joining MUFG in 2013, Ms. Clark was Chief Customer and Marketing Officer at PayPal.
