Huntington Bank Strengthens Michigan Leadership With New West Michigan Regional President John Irwin

In a move designed to strengthen the ongoing commitment to Michigan by Huntington Bank (NASDAQ: HBAN;, longtime local executive John Irwin has been named West Michigan president. Irwin is taking over leadership of the region from Huntington’s Regional and Commercial Banking Director Jim Dunlap, who will continue to lead the bank’s statewide strategy and engagement.

Irwin is a 32-year banking veteran who has been a part of Huntington’s West Michigan commercial banking business for nearly 11 years, most recently as corporate banking regional manager. In his new role, Irwin will lead the commercial business segment and orchestrate business development and service activities among all of Huntington’s businesses in the West Michigan region, while deepening the bank’s community relationships.

“John already does a great job as a leader for Huntington in West Michigan,” said Steve Steinour, chairman, president and CEO. “It is a natural move for him to take on the role of president for the region, continuing the positive contributions he has supported as a leader in the West Michigan business community.”

In addition to his work in Grand Rapids, Irwin has worked in banking throughout Arizona, Indiana and Ohio. His experience in the industry also includes international services, business banking and regional bank administration. He earned his bachelor’s from DePauw University and his master’s of business administration from Indiana University, and is also a graduate of the Stonier Graduate School of Banking.

“Huntington’s proven support for business to drive economic performance, particularly in Michigan, makes taking on my new role a welcome challenge,” Irwin said. “It is rewarding to represent a bank that is so intensely dedicated to its customers and communities.”

Irwin is a board member of the Gerald R. Ford Council, St. Cecilia Music Center and the Women’s Resource Center, and is also a Steering Committee member of the Huntington Colleagues’ Good Government Fund (HBI-PAC). In addition to his community involvement as a volunteer and active member with his wife Martha at Ada Bible Church, Irwin is an avid outdoorsman and triathlon competitor.
