COLUMBUS, Ohio - Huntington Bancshares Inc. said late Tuesday Michael J. McMennamin was named chief financial officer and treasurer, succeeding Anne Creek, who left the bank to pursue other interests.
Ms. Creek had held the CFO job since November 1999; she was treasurer since February.
Mr. McMennamin joined Huntington in June as president of Huntington Capital Corp., the company's broker-dealer subsidiary. He was also named an executive vice president of the Huntington National Bank, Huntington Bancshares' bank unit. Before joining Huntington, he was the CFO and executive vice president of Providence, R.I-based Citizens Financial Group, a subsidiary of Royal Bank of Scotland Plc. Still earlier he was an executive vice president and CFO with then-Columbus, Ohio-based Banc One Corp., before it merged with First Chicago NBD Corp. in 1998.
Mr. McMennamin will report to Frank Wobst, chairman and chief executive officer of Huntington Bancshares.
On Sept. 29, Huntington said earnings expectations for the third and fourth quarters would fall short due to lower lending activity and mortgage origination volume. It expects to incur a $33 million charge in the third quarter, representing a write-down of the auto lease residual values associated with its auto leasing portfolio.
The $29 billion asset Huntington is scheduled to report third quarter earnings this week.
