U.S. Bancorp's business is managed under the direction of the Board of Directors. We currently have 16 directors serving on our Board and all but
one of them are independent.
The Board delegates the conduct of business to U.S. Bancorp's senior management team. U.S. Bancorp's Corporate Governance Guidelines have been adopted by the Board of Directors to provide
a framework within which directors and management can effectively pursue U.S.
Bancorp's objectives for the benefit of shareholders.
If the position of chairman of the U.S. Bancorp Board of Directors is not held by an independent director, an independent lead director is elected by the Board. The Board of Directors has established guidelines with respect to the role of the lead director. The identity of the lead director is indicated on this chart.
The Board of Directors is organized
so that a significant portion of its business is conducted by its committees,
each of which operates under a written charter. In general, committees of the Board focus on
issues that may require in-depth scrutiny. All committees report to the Board,
and all significant findings of a committee are presented to the Board for discussion
