The launch of Zelle is another central element to the next chapter in how Huntington is investing in and enhancing its digital and mobile customer experience.

"At Huntington, we're continually exploring new and innovative ways to enhance our customer experience in line with our purpose to look out for people – and we're proud to bring Zelle's capabilities to our customers," said Andy Harmening, Huntington's Senior Executive Vice President and Director of Consumer and Business Banking. "P2P payments play an increasingly important role in the digital banking ecosystem and offering Zelle in our app provides our customers with another convenient payment management tool making it fast and easy to move money."

The introduction of Zelle comes quickly on the heels of the launch of The Hub, Huntington's new digital banking experience, which is built to proactively look out for customers and their financial future with a focus on people-first, technology-enabled delivery and solutions.

Free to all Huntington customers, The Hub is designed to help customers save more money, manage their spending and keep their financial goals front and center. The newest iteration of The Hub now includes Heads Up, a digital messaging program designed to provide insights into customer spending and saving to enable more informed decisions about their money.

Zelle allows for funds to be sent from one bank account to another, typically within minutes by using only a recipient's email address or U.S. mobile phone number. The Zelle Network® currently includes more than 95 million customers at banks of all sizes.
