Huntington’s sponsorship of the HealthLine station directly outside our Public Square headquarters reinforces our commitment to the city, expands our bank’s presence and supports the RTA in its mission of keeping Cleveland connected,” said Dan Walsh, president for Huntington Bank in Northeast Ohio.
