Huntington Bancshares (HBAN) in Columbus, Ohio, has named a new head of internal auditing.

Harry Farver succeeds Steven Brown as chief auditor, a spokeswoman for the $56 billion-asset company said.

Farver has been with Huntington for three years, serving as director of accounting operations until becoming interim chief auditor when Brown resigned in April. Before joining Huntington, Farver spent 12 years at PricewaterhouseCoopers.

Farver will report directly to Huntington's audit committee and will work with its executive team on auditing matters.

Farver "has the leadership skills, depth of experience and knowledge of banking needed as Huntington continues to grow," Stephen Steinour, Huntington's chairman and president, said in a news release Monday. "As interim chief auditor, [Farver] quickly proved his ability to lead auditing in a large and multi-faceted organization, while also effectively managing risk."

In May, Huntington's chief financial officer, Don Kimble, left to take the CFO position at KeyCorp (KEY) in Cleveland.
