Jennifer Green

Western Carolinas Director of Wealth Management, PNC Bank

Jennifer Green is the Director of Wealth Management for PNC Bank in the Western Carolina region.  She joined PNC Bank in 2004 in Columbus, Ohio, where she was born, raised and where much of her family still lives.

Jennifer attended Davidson College where she majored in economics and served as varsity tennis team captain for three years.  As a senior, she won the Southern Conference tennis tournament. She joined Bank of America upon graduation and served in various leadership roles throughout the Carolinas.

When Jennifer moved to Charlotte with PNC Bank in 2013, she immersed herself in the Charlotte community.  As a member of 2015 Leadership Charlotte, Class 36, Jennifer had the opportunity to learn of the challenges Charlotte faces today but also the true opportunities.

Jennifer serves on the boards of the Charlotte Mecklenburg Library Foundation, Freedom School Partners and Andreas H. Bechtler Arts Foundation.  She is also a member of Women Executives, Women’s Impact Fund, the Charlotte Estate Planning Council and Foundation for the Carolinas Cabinet of Professional Advisors.

She has chosen to dance for the Charlotte Mecklenburg Library Foundation because the library provides free and open access to information that can change lives and build a brighter future for all. The foundation exists to help the Charlotte Mecklenburg Library build a stronger community. The foundation supports the library’s programs and services through advocacy, fundraising and building relationships with others who share a passion for the library’s work. Foundation leaders are working with the community to build an endowment to sustain the library for many generations to come.

A few fun facts about Jennifer:

Dance Experience: Absolutely no dance experience. My friends and family will tell you that I am extraordinarily clumsy and have multiple scars and bruises to show for it!  My dance partner sure has his work cut out for him.

Family: Husband of 17 years, Doug Green.  Doug works for Electrolux in Charlotte. And two dogs, Smoke – German Shorthair Pointer and Cooper – Weimaraner.  Yes, they are spoiled rotten and know it.

Last book read: “Even if it Kills Her” by Kate White who is former editor-in-chief of Cosmopolitan magazine, New York Times best-selling author and member of this year’s Verse & Vino Library Gala author lineup.

Favorite sports: Ohio State Football. I met Woody Hayes when I was a young girl. Grew up going to OSU football games and have been a loyal fan my entire life. Go Bucks!

Charlotte Mecklenburg Library Foundation

The Charlotte Mecklenburg Library Foundation exists to help the Library improve lives and build a stronger community. In partnership with Foundation For The Carolinas, they have raised over $6.7 million in five years. Investment in the Library comes from all parts of the community, because so many of us recognize the critical importance of the Library’s services.  Private support is the greatest endorsement of the belief that free and open access to information can change lives for the better and build a brighter future for the community we share.
