"We have chosen Dana to lead an aggressive Pennsylvania growth initiative for the Private Financial Group," said Daniel B. Benhase, Huntington senior executive vice president and director of Huntington's Private Financial Group.
Huntington's new standalone offices for private banking and wealth management services raise the bank's total of dedicated Private Financial Group Pennsylvania office locations to six, now covering all of Western Pennsylvania. Two previously Pittsburgh-based private banking team members have relocated to Sharon to help lead practice growth within that office market. In addition to Pittsburgh, there are currently Private Financial Group service locations in Beaver and New Castle.
"I am confident we have the capability for strong growth with this team," said Audo, who is a Western Pennsylvania native who has built his banking career in Pittsburgh. "All of us have more than 20 years of experience and deep roots in Western Pennsylvania. With our enhanced presence to the north and our expanded team in greater Pittsburgh, we are looking forward to building new customer relationships and strengthening our existing customer relationships within our $4 billion region asset portfolio."
