Huntington has announced the appointment of two long-time Huntington leaders in Michigan to take on new and expanded responsibilities to support the company’s growth in the state.
Eric Dietz, a 30-year financial services veteran, was named regional president for southeast Michigan. In his new role, Dietz will lead Huntington’s growth and investment across Detroit along with community and civic engagement activities. He will continue to serve as wealth and investment management leader in the region.
“I am proud of the incredible success of our southeast Michigan region and look forward to Eric’s leadership working with all of our colleagues,” says Sandy Pierce, Huntington’s regional banking director and chair of Michigan. “His background as a leading banker and his commitment to look out for the people of southeast Michigan have positioned him well for this critical role.”
Dietz also serves on the board of the Metro Detroit Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation, Forgotten Harvest, and the Dr. Gary Burnstein Community Health Clinic. He received his bachelor’s degree in finance from Michigan State University.
Greg Viener, a 15-year veteran of Huntington, was named mid-Michigan regional president. He most recently served as community president in Flint and Genesee County for the company.
Viener will be responsible for all Huntington business activity in the region.
“We are extremely proud for Greg to take on this new role because he lives our purpose to make people’s lives better every day,” says Pierce. “He is pure Michigan, and his experience, market insights, and true commitment to our community and our state have prepared him for this important new challenge.”
Viener serves as vice chair on the board of directors for the United Way of Genesee County, on the board of Food Bank of Eastern Michigan, and as YouthQuest chair of the board for the Flint and Genesee Chamber of Commerce. Viener earned a bachelor’s degree in business administration with a finance concentration from Regis University.
