Fortune 500 recognizes Citizens Bank’s growth and success.


In 2016, Citizens Bank had yet another great reason to celebrate. After becoming a fully independent, publicly traded company in November 2015 — largest commercial bank initial public offering in U.S. history — and joining the S&P 500, we were named to the Fortune 500 for the first time in January 2016. Earning a spot on the list is impressive recognition of our journey towards becoming a top-performing regional bank.

Fortune Magazine looks primarily at total revenue to create its highly-regarded ranking of the largest American companies. Being named to this list is a clear statement about our growth, size and stature.

Bruce Van Saun, Chairman and CEO of Citizens Bank, credits the team of colleagues throughout the bank for the honor, commenting, “We should feel very good about this achievement because each colleague played a role in making it happen. Leaders across our bank have put us in a position to execute our plan, and colleagues in every business and function have done a great job of keeping the customer front and center.”

For colleagues at Citizens, the Fortune 500 recognition demonstrates what can be achieved when collaboration, teamwork and a focus on the customer are at the core of an organization’s culture.

“I look forward to continuing to challenge ourselves to get better, and remain focused on doing the right things for all stakeholders, especially our colleagues and customers,” says Bruce Van Saun.
