Huntington Bancshares Names Harry Farver Chief Internal Auditor

Stocks in this article: HBAN

Harry Farver has been named Huntington Bancshares (NASDAQ: HBAN; www.huntington.com) chief auditor, the company announced today. Farver, who has been serving as interim chief auditor, will report directly to the audit committee of the Huntington Board of Directors. Farver will continue to direct internal audit functions and interface with the board and the bank’s executive leadership team on audit and control matters.

“Harry has the leadership skills, depth of experience and knowledge of banking needed as Huntington continues to grow,” said Stephen D. Steinour, chairman, CEO and president of Huntington. “As interim chief auditor, Harry quickly proved his ability to lead auditing in a large and multi-faceted organization, while also effectively managing risk.”

“Harry’s comprehensive experience in accounting and banking give him a clear understanding of the role of internal audit,” said Richard Neu, chairman of the board’s audit committee. “We look forward to continuing to work with Harry and his team of dedicated audit professionals.”

Farver joined Huntington three years ago, as director of accounting operations. Prior to joining Huntington, he was at PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP for more than 12 years, ending his tenure there as senior manager for the assurance practice covering the manufacturing, services, banking, insurance and mutual funds industries. He also worked for three years for the former Bank One as an accounting manager.

“Huntington has instituted strong audit and risk management practices that are executed by an experienced team,” said Farver. “I am delighted to be spearheading auditing at Huntington.”

Farver serves as treasurer of The Huntington Foundation. In addition, he is a board member of the Center of Vocational Alternatives in Columbus.

A graduate of Ashland University, Farver earned a BSBA in accounting and finance.
