Huntington Bank Deepens Texas Roots with Dallas Expansion and Veteran Leadership

Huntington Bank

Huntington Bank, a powerhouse in the banking industry, is solidifying its presence in the Lone Star State with a strategic expansion into the Dallas-Fort Worth area. This move, coupled with the appointment of industry veteran Clint Bryant as Texas Market President, signifies the bank’s commitment to serving the booming Texas economy.

Bryant, a seasoned professional with a proven track record, brings a wealth of experience to the table. He highlights the allure of Texas for Huntington: “Texas boasts one of the world’s largest economies, presenting a tremendous landscape of opportunity. The state’s business-friendly environment and constant influx of companies and individuals make it an undeniably attractive market for our growth initiatives.”

This strategic move isn’t merely an expansion, but rather an extension of Huntington’s existing footprint in Texas. The bank already boasts over 160 employees across the state, actively engaged in corporate banking, automotive finance, and Small Business Administration lending.

“Huntington’s mission in Texas is to empower businesses and fuel their success,” emphasizes Scott Kleinman, President of Huntington’s commercial bank. “With Clint Bryant’s leadership and industry expertise, we are confident in our ability to effectively cater to the unique needs of middle-market companies in the state.”

Bryant’s impressive career trajectory includes leadership roles at prominent financial institutions like Texas Capital Bank, SunTrust Robinson Humphrey, Fifth Third, and Wells Fargo. He’s drawn to Huntington’s rich legacy and culture: “The opportunity to join a firm with Huntington’s heritage, established in 1866, and renowned reputation for excellence, was immensely appealing. Combined with their extensive capabilities and market reach, Huntington offers a truly differentiating proposition.”

While Dallas serves as the initial anchor point, Huntington’s plans for Texas extend far beyond. Branching out and establishing a robust presence across the state is on the immediate horizon.
