PNC Celebrates Hispanic Heritage Month

PITTSBURGH, Sept. 16, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- The PNC Financial Services Group (NYSE: PNC) is honoring Hispanic Heritage Month from Sept. 15 to Oct. 15 with sponsored programs and events in 18 cities, including Chicago, Orlando, Fla., Pittsburgh and Tampa, Fla.  These events reflect PNC's strategic investment in the Hispanic community, which continues to grow in size and influence.

According to the 2012 Nielsen study, The Hispanic Market Imperative, Hispanics' buying power is projected to reach $1.5 trillion by 2015.  Furthermore, if U.S. Hispanics were a standalone country, their market buying power would be one of the top 20 global economies.  By hosting events across its footprint, PNC can better compete for diverse talent, deepen existing relationships and build new relationships with Hispanic customers.    

"These celebrations allow us to further connect with Hispanics and to better understand their family, lifestyle and cultural needs," said Enrico A. Della Corna, Southeast regional executive, Commercial Banking.   "By embracing their heritage and values, we can build sustainable relationships with the Hispanic community, which has become a driving force of our social and economic future."
