Forty Under 40: Maggie Niekrash, Huntington National Bank

Maggie Niekrash, senior vice president of energy banking at The Huntington National Bank in Boston, is today’s Forty Under 40 featured honoree.

After graduating from college, Maggie accepted a job with Bank of America where she ultimately served as a vice president in corporate debt products on the natural resources team. During that time she met Stephen Hoffman, a managing director on the bank’s natural resources team who would later recruit Maggie to help start an energy team at Huntington.

Since the co-founding of Huntington’s energy team in 2012, Maggie has helped grow its portfolio to more than $1.5 billion in loan commitments from more than 60 clients.

“Co-founding a team was something that I knew I wanted to do at some point in my career, but the opportunity presented itself much earlier than I expected,” Maggie said. “I think working hard and being reliable helped me realize the milestone sooner than expected.”
