Huntington regional president to retire

YOUNGSTOWN — Bill Shivers, Huntington’s regional president for Canton and the Mahoning Valley, is retiring after 29 years in the banking industry, the bank announced Tuesday.

He joined Huntington in 2007, serving as vice president and team leader of commercial banking before being named regional president for Canton and the Mahoning Valley.

Before that, Shivers held a commercial banking role at KeyBank, worked as a state examiner for the Ohio State Auditor’s Office and held the roles of director of sales and marketing and vice president of operations for Quaker Manufacturing Corp.

Nick Browning, regional president for Akron, will assume expanded leadership for Canton and Mahoning Valley after Shivers’ retirement in March 2022.

“Bill has been a great leader for Huntington and a great partner across the bank,” Steve Steinour, Huntington’s chairman, president and CEO, said. “His many contributions will continue to serve Huntington well as will the strong relationships he’s built with customers and colleagues alike. We remain committed to our continued growth and success in the region, and I’m confident in Nick’s leadership moving forward.”

Browning joined Huntington in 2016 after the merger of FirstMerit. While at FirstMerit, he served as executive vice president, Akron president and CEO, and was responsible for coordinating the activities of retail, wealth and commercial banking for the Akron region.

George Glasser will remain the community president in Canton, and Sam Houston will remain the community president in Youngstown.
