Neumeyer to Retire as Huntington CCO; Pohle Named as Successor


After more than 35 years in the banking industry, Huntington Bank Chief Credit Officer, Dan Neumeyer, will retire at the end of June 2019.

Rich Pohle, currently the bank’s senior credit approval officer, will succeed Neumeyer and become a member of the executive leadership team. He will report to Chief Risk Officer, Helga Houston, who will assume expanded responsibility for the credit organization following Neumeyer’s retirement.

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 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.”

Before joining Huntington, Neumeyer was chief credit officer for Comerica Bank-Texas, where he was responsible for credit approval and portfolio administration. He began his career as a commercial banker in 1983 at Manufacturers National Bank of Detroit, which later merged with Comerica.

Prior to joining Huntington in 2011, Pohle worked at Key Bank as division manager in asset-based lending for nine years.

“Rich’s successful career, proven judgment and credit discipline make him an ideal choice for this role,” Steinour said. “His leadership experience in both the commercial line of business and credit function make Rich a valuable addition to the executive leadership team.”

Founded in 1866 and headquartered in Columbus, OH, Huntington Bank is a regional bank with $106 billion in assets and a network of 962 branches and 1,762 ATMs across eight Midwestern states.
