HUNTINGTON — Recognizing a historic over-dependence on the coal industry and the distress caused by that industry's decline, Brandon Dennison, founder and CEO of Coalfield Development Corp. in Wayne, has developed a unique workforce model focused on transforming communities in southern West Virginia.

HUNTINGTON - United Bank's move to downtown Huntington was celebrated Thursday by company officials and others with a grand opening and a ribbon-cutting with the Huntington Regional Chamber of Commerce. United Bank had announced in July it was opening a new office in the the first floor of 517 9th St. in the tall structure that has gone by various names previously, including the Robson Prichard Building, the Chafin Building, the Guaranty Bank Building and the First Sentry Bank Building. For a while, it housed the downtown branch of Fifth Third Bank.
