Kiyoun Kim

Executive Vice President, Regional Manager for California


Israel Discount Bank of New York (IDB Bank)


Kiyoun Kim is a highly-talented lending professional, an inspiring leader and an outstanding financial partner, focused on bringing new and innovative products and customized solutions to the local marketplace. Kim is the first female EVP/regional manager at IDB. Since 2014, she has led the three business units (Middle Market Business Banking, Commercial Real Estate, and Private Banking) across IDB’s two California full-service branches. In the process she and her teams have worked to increase loans, deposits, and investments, all of which led to profitability nearly doubling in recent years. 


In early 2020, the spread of the coronavirus essentially shut down most businesses. All of IDB’s clients were impacted and in response, Kim spent a good deal of time this year personally reaching out to every client to find out how they were doing, checking to see what kinds of help they needed, and providing the necessary tools and solutions to support them during this unprecedented time.
