CLEVELAND, Ohio — Huntington Bank says it plans to eliminate 150 to 200 jobs, although the number of employees laid off could be fewer than that.
The Columbus-based bank, which has about 185 branches in the Cleveland-Akron-Canton markets, employed 15,780 at the end of the second quarter, based on its latest regulatory filing. The 150 to 200 jobs would represent about a 1% cut.
Huntington spokeswoman Emily Smith said Friday the cuts are expected to be spread out across the seven states where Huntington has branches. There was no indication how many of the jobs may be corporate positions, customer-facing jobs in branches or in back-office roles.
About 20% of its 868 branches are in the Greater Cleveland-Akron-Canton area.
