He will serve on the company’s Executive Team and report to President and Chief Executive Officer Bruce Broussard.
A 10-year veteran of Bank of America, Huval served most recently as the bank’s Senior Vice President for Consumer Service and Operations.

He also served as Human Resources Executive and as Chief Information Officer for Bank of America’s global investment management group and as Operations Executive for its Global Card Services division.
