She will also lead Bank of America’s corporate social responsibility work in the market, which leverages the capabilities of the company to help communities, clients and customers more effectively address a wide range of issues. Her efforts will focus primarily on the St. Louis side, since the Illinois counties to the east fall under the Chicago-based market president.

She manages teams of specialists who advise high net worth and ultra high net worth families, businesses and nonprofit institutions. Yoon is responsible for driving growth in the U.S. Trust business across the Midwest region and for enhancing collaboration between businesses across the firm. She joined Bank of America in 2014 with more than two decades of private wealth management experience in leader global financial institutions.
Active in the local community, Yoon serves on the boards of Youth in Need and the Contemporary Art Museum. She is also a member of the board of trustees for Chaminade College Preparatory School and has held several leadership roles in the United Way of Greater St. Louis.
