Huntington Bank: Supporting Business
I was recently honored to be interviewed by Huntington Bank for their Insights Magazine. 20 years ago I meet a banker that would help me through numerous businesses and various situations. The benefits of having a trustworthy and committed banking relationship is key to the success of any venture. He name was Dana Audo, and he was a private banker with National City Bank at the time. Dana helped me arrange financing that allowed me to build a new office for my insurance agency in the late 90’s. It was a two story, brick office building with several tenants. My agency occupied the second floor. It was the hub for 150 people, 23 location operation.
I moved to Chicago, but kept my banking relationship intact with Dana. Ultimately he joined Huntington Bank and I moved my accounts there. Huntington and their team has been an absolutely wonderful group of people to work with, both personally and professionally. If you are looking for a great bank, please visit your local branch and see what they have to offer. www.huntington.com
Huntington Bank helped me arrange the loans and credit lines needed to launch the Center of Harmony under Great Things LLC. The team has been to the facility on numerous occasions and truly understand what I am doing here. So, it was really an honor to be recognized in their corporate publication for the impact being made in Harmony. There has been a lot sweat, blood, love and even a few tears put into The Center. It feel great to be seen and recognized for the last 6 years of building the Center and being a part of Harmony, PA.
