MUFG Union Bank in New York has promoted Mike Feldman to head of branch and private banking.

Feldman most recently led the $111 billion-asset MUFG's branch banking division in California. He has also previously worked as the bank's national sales manager for retail banking.

Before joining the bank in 2009, he was the managing director for retail banking at the $117 billion-asset Countrywide Bank, which was acquired during the financial crisis by Bank of America.

In his newly created role, Feldman will continue to report to Pierre Habis, head of the MFUG Union's consumer and business banking groups.

"Mike is a proven leader, and his extensive experience and success leading investment services and licensed banker programs made him the obvious choice to lead private banking," Habis said in a press release Monday.

MUFG Union Bank is a subsidiary of the Mitsubishi UFJ Financial Group in Tokyo. The bank has 410 U.S. offices, nearly all of those being retail branches in California and Washington state, according to the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp. website.
