Huntington Bank's Central Indiana Region to Transition Leadership

Posted by ehayden on May 3, 2016

Planned succession from retiring current leader to longtime senior executive will ensure Huntington’s continuous commitment to Central Indiana communities.

INDIANAPOLIS – Huntington Bank Central Indiana Region President Mike Newbold has announced his intention to retire this summer and will be transitioning leadership for the region to John Corbin, a longtime Huntington banking executive in Indianapolis.

Newbold is a career-long banking leader in Central Indiana who has served as Huntington’s regional president since the company’s entry into the market in 2007, and was previously regional president for Huntington’s predecessor banks in Indianapolis. Corbin has worked for Huntington more than a decade as a senior executive and has deep ties to the Central Indiana region.

“Mike has been an integral resource within Huntington’s senior leadership,” said Steve Steinour, Huntington’s chairman, president and CEO. “His experience and expertise have contributed to Huntington’s growth and success over the past several years. We appreciate his support in facilitating a smooth shift to leave the region in good hands as he retires.”

“Mike is leaving a deep legacy within Huntington’s culture, having been instrumental in the company’s performance and investment within Central Indiana,” said Jim Dunlap, director of regional banking and The Huntington Private Client Group. “As we honor and recognize his years of service, we are also enthusiastic to elevate John Corbin to lead Huntington in the region. John and Mike have worked closely together to drive Huntington’s success in Central Indiana so that this leadership succession is a natural step forward.” 

“I am grateful to have had the opportunity to conclude my career working for Huntington,” Newbold said. “I will continue to play an active role in the community as a volunteer as I enjoy the increased time for service retirement will bring. I congratulate John and know he is prepared and ready to take on the regional leadership role.” 

“I am excited to serve Huntington in my new capacity,” Corbin said. “I join all Central Indiana colleagues in wishing Mike the very best for his future. As incoming regional president, I will continue Mike’s great work furthering Huntington’s performance by building and deepening relationships within our customer base.” 

As regional president, Corbin will continue his role leading business banking for the region, and assume management of the private banking business and coordination among the company’s business lines as Huntington’s top-ranking executive for the geography. Prior to joining Huntington, Corbin worked for 11 years with Chase in business banking and branch delivery. He is a member of the board of directors of Wheeler Mission and a past director and chairman of Handi-Capable Hands. A finance bachelor’s graduate of Indiana University Kelley School of Business, Corbin is currently completing the Consumer Bankers Association Executive Banking School program at Furman University.

Newbold will continue to serve in a consultative role with Huntington to assist with the transition following his departure as regional president. He will also continue to serve in numerous civic activities, including service as of chair of the Indiana Community Business Credit Corporation, a director of The Children’s Bureau, Develop Indy, LYNX Capital Corporation, and the Indianapolis Neighborhood Housing Partnership. Newbold also serves as a member of the Board of Public Works and Safety for the City of Greenwood.
