WHEELING - Huntington Bank has named Susan Baker Shipley president of its Western Pennsylvania and Ohio Valley region. Shipley joins Huntington from The Royal Bank of Scotland/Citizens Bank where she was head of global trade finance for North America.
In her new role, Shipley will lead the commercial business segment, and orchestrate business development and service activities among all of Huntington's businesses in the region, while deepening the bank's community relationships. She will report to Jim Dunlap, Huntington's regional and commercial banking director.

"A Pittsburgh native, Susie knows the diverse industries of the area and is committed to help local businesses. This knowledge and her strong banking background will enable her to drive Huntington's ongoing growth. Susie's deep ties in the Pittsburgh community through her long history of supporting dozens of organizations will also help her to expand Huntington's community relationships."
"I am delighted to join Huntington, which is one of the best regional banks in the country," said Shipley.
"I have admired Huntington's investment in western Pennsylvania and the Ohio Valley. I look forward to joining an organization that shares my values and commitment to the community."
Shipley will succeed David Hammer, who has chosen to leave Huntington to pursue other interests.
