Michael Ott Appointed Central Region President for the Private Client Reserve of U.S. Bank


U.S. Bank, a leading provider of wealth management and private banking services, announced today that Michael Ott has been appointed central region president for The Private Client Reserve of U.S. Bank. He will retain his current role as Twin Cities market leader of The Private Client Reserve.

"Mike's experience in the wealth and investment management business, his military background as a lieutenant colonel in the U.S. Air Force Reserves and his experience in the Midwest make him particularly suited for this role," said Michael Boardman, president of The Private Client Reserve. "Since joining U.S. Bank, Mike has demonstrated great leadership in his roles within The Private Client Reserve."

In his new role, Ott will be instrumental in helping to continue to drive growth across The Private Client Reserve's central region, which includes Minneapolis/St. Paul, Chicago, Milwaukee and Madison and represents more than $15 billion in assets under management. He will lead a team of more than 300 investment, trust, private banking, advisory and financial planning professionals, responsible for serving clients across a broad geography. In this capacity, Ott will be working with market leaders in fortifying the client experience and fostering growth initiatives throughout U.S. Bank's wealth management platform.

Ott joined U.S. Bank in 2009 as head of investments in the Twin Cities and later became Twin Cities market leader of The Private Client Reserve. In this role, he has led teams of experienced professionals across all disciplines of wealth management and has been directly responsible for overseeing portfolio managers and the investment process. Prior to joining U.S. Bank, Ott served as managing partner at Somerset Asset Management LLC in Minneapolis. Prior to that, he worked at Piper Jaffray & Co., initially in institutional equity sales and eventually as managing director and head of the equity research department. He has also worked for the ABN/AMRO/Chicago Corporation and Ford Motor Company after serving as an officer in the U.S. Air Force. Ott has an MBA from Boston College and is a graduate of the U.S. Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs. He has also earned FINRA series 7, 24, 63 and 87 licenses. He is currently a lieutenant colonel in the U.S. Air Force Reserves, where he serves as a military advisor for an undersecretary of Defense in the Pentagon.
