U.S. Bank Leaders among American Banker’s Most Powerful Women in Banking

Leslie Godridge and Kate Quinn honored by industry magazine at New York gala

MINNEAPOLIS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Oct. 11, 2016-- Leslie Godridge, vice chairman and co-head of wholesale banking, and Kate Quinn, chief strategy and reputation officer at U.S. Bank, have been honored by American Banker Magazine as among the “Most Powerful Women in Banking” for 2016. Honorees were celebrated in a ceremony hosted by American Banker in New York City.

Godridge, who joined U.S. Bank in 2007, is at the helm of U.S. Bank Wholesale Banking, one of the company’s four primary business lines. She was promoted to the company’s managing committee as a vice chairman in January, and today oversees growing business in national corporate banking, global treasury management, public and nonprofit finance, international banking and corporate specialized industries. Once regionally focused, U.S. Bank’s national corporate business banking now has national recognition thanks to Godridge’s leadership, with more than 1,500 clients and loan volume growth of more than 9 percent year over year.

Quinn, who joined U.S. Bank in 2013, oversees one of the most high-profile divisions of the company in recent years, and has been the driving force behind U.S. Bank’s corporate strategy and brand transformation. U.S. Bank has a reputation as one of the most admired banks in the financial industry, but it wasn’t going to rest on its laurels. In only three years, Quinn has brought forward an aggressive strategy to unify the company’s brand and core values, and established a strategic framework for future growth. Her contributions are most visible in the company’s new brand promise, “The Power of Possible.”

U.S. Bank has been consistently recognized in the “Most Powerful Women in Banking” since the program’s inception. Godridge ranked 7th and Quinn was 14th on the list of Women to Watch in 2016.

Women at U.S. Bank are encouraged as leaders through a number of initiatives. Most recently, the company launched an internal "U.S. Bank Women" Business Resource Group (BRG) in early 2016. The BRG, which has more than 4,000 members, provides employees across the company with a variety of events and activities, from guest speakers and seminars to volunteer opportunities.

U.S. Bancorp (NYSE: USB), with $438 billion in assets as of June 30, 2016, is the parent company of U.S. Bank National Association, the fifth-largest commercial bank in the United States. The company operates 3,122 banking offices in 25 states and 4,923 ATMs and provides a comprehensive line of banking, investment, mortgage, trust and payment services products to consumers, businesses and institutions.
