    Don Haddad has over 35 years of banking experience, primarily in the middle market space, which is defined as companies with revenues from $25 million to $500 million. Currently, he serves as a senior vice president for Citizens Bank. In this position, which Haddad assumed in 2011, his primary responsibility is delivering the new business budget, and ultimately the budget for the PA West region for Citizens Bank. At Citizens, Haddad has been credited with the booking of well over $1 billion in new loan originations.

    Haddad has spent the vast majority of his career in the banking arena, adding value as a middle market lender, an asset based lender, and as a manager. Prior to joining Citizens in 2002, Haddad worked for Rockwell International, Maryland National Bank, Mellon Bank, and managed the Pittsburgh office for National Bank of Canada. When the United States operations of National Bank of Canada were sold in 2002, he joined Citizens Bank.  

    Haddad previously served as president for the Pittsburgh chapters of both the Association for Corporate Growth and the Commercial Finance Association. In addition to these organizations, he has also been involved with the Financial Executive Institute and the Eberly College of Business and Information Technology’s Business Advisory Council. One of Haddad’s current passions is developing the next generation of leaders and bankers.  

    Haddad, who grew up on the north side of Pittsburgh and later in Bellevue, earned his bachelor’s degree in business administration, with a concentration in finance and a minor in economics from Indiana University of Pennsylvania in 1979. Haddad then earned his MBA from Robert Morris University in 1984. He is one of four Haddad boys who attended IUP in the late 70s and early 80s. Also, two of his three children attended IUP. Haddad currently calls home McCandless Township, a northern suburb of Pittsburgh.
