First Financial Announces New Commercial Banking Exec

February 08, 2019, 06:55 AM

First Financial Bancorp, based in Cincinnati, announced the upcoming retirement of Chief Banking Officer Tony Stollings, who has been a key member of the bank’s leadership team for more than 12 years. The bank has hired Andy Hauck to serve as the Commercial Banking Executive and Cathy Myers to serve as the Consumer Banking Executive. Stollings will work closely with Hauck, Myers and the entire leadership team to ensure a smooth transition for associates and clients until his retirement later this year.

“Tony has been an integral part of First Financial’s transformation and growth into the high-performing company that we are today. We are very happy for Tony and appreciate his many years of service to our company,” said Archie Brown, First Financial’s president and CEO. “I am very excited to have Andy and Cathy join the First Financial team. I believe they both bring the right mix of experience, leadership and strategic thinking that will help their teams continue to provide responsive service and comprehensive solutions to meet the needs of our clients, while helping us achieve even greater levels of success.”

Hauck, a seasoned commercial banking leader, joins First Financial with more than 30 years of experience. As Commercial Banking Executive, Hauck will lead the team across the bank’s footprint in Ohio, Indiana and Kentucky focusing on investment commercial real estate, commercial banking, business capital, equipment finance and treasury management.

“We are pleased to welcome Andy to our team,” Brown continued. “He brings a wealth of knowledge and expertise that will allow us to continue to deliver high-quality services and solutions to our clients while building new capabilities to expand our commercial banking offerings.”

Hauck is a graduate of Vanderbilt University. Prior to joining First Financial, he worked for Fifth Third Bank for many years as a Corporate Banking Executive and after that served as Managing Director with Lazear Capital Partners.

Myers will oversee the day-to-day operations of the consumer, business banking, wealth and mortgage banking groups while driving strategic initiatives designed to further assist clients in achieving their goals.

Myers graduated from West Virginia University and earned a master’s degree in business administration from Xavier University. Prior to joining First Financial Bank, she held leadership positions with U.S. Bank, Key Bank and First National Bank of Southwestern Ohio.
