McHugh replaces Chad Borton, who is leaving Fifth Third to become
president of USAA Federal Savings Bank. Prior to Borton’s extensive
banking career, he served as an active-duty U.S. Army officer. The USAA
family of companies provides financial services to current and former
members of the U.S. military and their families.
“I am confident that Phil McHugh will ably lead our Consumer Bank. Our
deep bench of talented executives ensured that we had a strong successor
to maintain our positive momentum,” said Carmichael. “While we are sorry
to see Chad go, his new role at USAA fulfills a dream of leading an
organization dedicated to serving the needs of military personnel,
veterans and their families.”
McHugh has been with Fifth Third since 1986. Prior to assuming
leadership of the Bank’s Wealth and Asset Management division, McHugh
served as president of Fifth Third’s Louisville region and in a variety
of commercial and trust roles.
“I am excited to take on this new role,” said McHugh. “I have a passion
for serving our retail customers and coordinating efforts with our other
lines of business to offer a comprehensive array of solutions.”
With this change, Ralph (Mike) Michael, executive vice president and
regional president now will head Fifth Third’s Wealth and Asset
Management division, in addition to regional responsibilities. He will
continue to report to Chief Operating Officer Lars Anderson.
Michael joined Fifth Third in 2010 as president of Fifth Third Bank
(Cincinnati) and subsequently assumed responsibility for the regional
presidents who manage geographic markets across the Bank’s footprint.
Over the course of his career, Michael has held a number of leadership
positions in the insurance and banking industries.
Carmichael commented, “Mike has the right background to lead our Wealth
and Asset Management business. We are pleased that he will leverage his
considerable operational strengths in a business that is increasingly
important to us.”
