Held about 8 times a year since 1984, Breakfast Briefings were a staple in the diets of Pittsburgh professionals. The morning events presented visionaries whose work set the standards for best business practices around the corner and around the world. In 2022, this series was revamped as the Huntington Bank CEO Series and presents the same local leaders but sessions now take place throughout the work day, not only during breakfast!

If you know a CEO who’s interested in speaking at a Huntingon Bank CEO Series event, contact Allison Kaharick

To sponsor an upcoming Huntingon Bank CEO Series event, contact Ashley Steckel.
