Huntington Bank names interim president for southern Ohio, Kentucky


Huntington Bank on Tuesday named 23-year banking veteran Kevin Jones interim president of its southern Ohio/Kentucky region.

Jones succeeds Mark Reitzes, who has chosen to leave Huntington to pursue other interests, the bank said. Jones joined the bank as business development director in April.

Jones 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, the bank said. He will report directly to Regional and Commercial Banking Director Jim Dunlap.

“Kevin is a longtime resident of greater Cincinnati, who knows the needs of businesses in Southern Ohio,” said Dunlap. “He has deep ties with businesses and community groups and is strongly committed to the area.”

Prior to joining Huntington, Jones served as director of U.S. financial institutions at Fifth Third Bank where he oversaw all sales and business development functions, including new product rollouts, key account management, client relationship development, contract negotiations, and strategic organization. He also has extensive experience managing all aspects of private banking and wealth management in the greater Cincinnati region, including traditional banking, brokerage, wealth management, insurance and wealth planning activities.

Jones earned his bachelor’s in finance and economics from Miami University in Oxford, Ohio, and has served as board chairman and treasurer for St. Ursula Villa School. He is also a recently appointed board member of the Cincinnati Opera.
