Inez K. Miles (ICPES 71) understands the importance of combining philanthropy with business innovation. For this reason, along with a passion for her community, Miles and her employer, Citizens Bank of Pennsylvania, were recognized by Queen Elizabeth II. She and two other Citizens Bank employees were chosen to represent the company at a ceremony at Buckingham Palace in London.
In July of 2003, the Royal Bank of Scotland Group plc, Citizens Bank’s parent group, was honored with the prestigious Queen’s Award for Enterprise 2003, which recognizes businesses for performance in trade, innovation and sustainable development. Citizens Bank was awarded in the trade category for its achievement in growing its international earnings. Each year, Queen Elizabeth II identifies companies that try to find new ways to generate business and improve the quality of life in local communities. Miles and her work at Citizens Bank met these standards, through monetary investment and improvement made for the advancement of her community.
Miles is the relationship manager for Citizens Bank in Pittsburgh, Pa. where she advises nonprofit agencies on lending options and assists in obtaining loans. For Miles, a socially responsible job is key. For that reason, Miles was chosen to represent Citizens Bank.
According to Pamela Crawley, Senior Vice President at Citizens Bank, “Miles represents best what Citizen’s Bank stands for – exceptional commitment to the community.”
Improving life for those less fortunate is very important to Miles when away from the office too. She volunteers with the Magee Women’s Health Center, the Family Health Council, the World Affairs Council of Pittsburgh and is on the Alumni Board of Governors at her Alma Mater, Duquesne University.
