Neumeyer joined Huntington in 2009 and has been instrumental in leading its credit organization, including credit policy and portfolio risk management as well as credit approval.
"Dan has been an outstanding and integral member of our executive leadership team," said Steve Steinour, Huntington's chairman, president and CEO. "He's made many contributions to Huntington during his tenure helping to build, lead and protect the bank. Our credit culture and the depth of our credit organization reflects his decade-long focus to build a very good team. Dan was here with me from my start and is a well-respected leader, great colleague and partner. We are very grateful for his leadership and will continue to benefit from the depth and strength of his team."
