Angel Martin - Huntington National Bank

I graduated from USHS in 2001 and Owens Community College in 2003 with an Associates of Business Management. Shortly after I started my career with Huntington National Bank as a teller and was promoted to different positions such as Banking Office Customer Advocate, Personal Banker, and now Branch Manager. Along with being the Branch Manager of the Upper Sandusky branch, I am also a Registered Investment Representative with Huntington Investment Company. This year, I will be celebrating my 12th year with the company. I take great pride in my job, my branch, my company, and my community, and that is why I am very excited to be a part of the Ambassadors Council. I have lived in Upper Sandusky my entire life and enjoy raising my nine-year-old son, Aden, in the same community. I stay very active with each sports Aden plays in and other activities he is involved with, and can’t wait for each sport to start again.
