Huntington Announces The Creation Of 250 New Jobs In Ohio

Huntington (NASDAQ: HBAN; announced today that it will add 250 new jobs in Ohio over the next four years in support of its new credit card program. The new jobs are the result of a successful public-private partnership that helped level the playing field for Ohio financial institutions to compete against institutions in other states.

Joining Huntington CEO, Steve Steinour, for the economic development announcement were Governor John R. Kasich, Senate President Tom Niehaus, House Speaker Bill Batchelder, Senate Minority Leader Eric Kearney, and Kenny McDonald, Chief Economic Officer of Columbus 2020.

“Huntington is deeply committed to Ohio. We’re headquartered here and have been since we were founded almost 150 years ago. And we look to Ohio first for any opportunity to expand our business,” said Huntington CEO Steve Steinour. “Ohio and the Midwest are helping lead the U.S. economy out of recession. And public-private partnership like House Bill 322, supported by Governor Kasich and passed with bipartisan support in the legislature in May 2012, allows Huntington to build its credit card business, while creating 250 new jobs in our home state.”

Developing its own, differentiated line of business and consumer cards is an important part of Huntington’s overall strategy to offer more benefits and better convenience for its customers. Additionally, the cards will augment the bank’s continued focus on offering a broad range of products and services providing additional payment solutions for its customers. The cards will enable Huntington to provide a consistent high level of service and also will allow for additional cross sell opportunities to further deepen relationships with the bank’s rapidly-growing customer base.

“I appreciate Huntington’s recognition of the legislature’s commitment to encourage businesses to grow and expand in Ohio,” said Senate President Tom Niehaus. “This is evidence of how bipartisan cooperation benefits Ohioans. It enables Ohio to be competitive with other states, and helps us attract investments that create jobs.”
