Huntington Bancshares in Columbus, Ohio, has hired a former Truist Financial executive to oversee its consumer and business banking operations.
The $174 billion-asset Huntington said in a press release Wednesday that Brant Standridge will become president of consumer and business banking in early April. He will oversee the company’s branches, business banking, mortgage and home lending and Huntington Financial Advisors.
Standridge will join Huntington’s executive leadership team and report to Steve Steinour, the company’s chairman, president and CEO.
Standridge previously served as chief retail community banking officer at Truist. He was president of BB&T’s community bank retail and consumer finance businesses prior to that company’s 2019 acquisition of SunTrust Banks.
“Brant’s experience leading one of the largest consumer banks in the nation aligns well with our goal to grow within our expanded footprint and to deliver our differentiated capabilities such as small-business banking beyond our current geography,” Steinour said in the release.
“Brant’s deep background leading large-scale businesses across consumer and business banking makes him the ideal leader to ensure we have the resources, products and distribution mix to meet our customers’ evolving needs,” Steinour added.
Truist tapped Dontá Wilson to become its head of retail community banking and marketing. He previously served as Truist’s chief digital and client experience officer.
