MINNEAPOLIS, Oct. 23 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- U.S. Bancorp Asset
Management today announced that it has named David A. Chalupnik as its new head of equities.  Chalupnik, who joins the firm from Duff & Phelps Investment Management Co. in Chicago, will be responsible for the investment process and performance of the equities group, which includes approximately $38 billion of equity assets under management and more than 70 professionals and support staff.  In addition, he will become a member of the firm's Investment Policy Committee, which is responsible for developing and maintaining investment philosophy and process.  Chalupnik assumes the position from Marion Quade, who will continue to serve as a portfolio manager of the First American Large Cap Core Fund.

Chalupnik, who has more than 18 years of investment experience, served as chief investment officer of Duff & Phelps Investment Management Co. from 2000 to 2002.  Prior to that, he was head of the Equity Investment Division of Allstate Insurance Company in Northbrook, Ill.  He also managed large-cap and mid-cap portfolios for Allstate and served as assistant research director and a senior investment analyst.  He has M.B.A. and B.S. degrees from DePaul University in Chicago and is a C.F.A.

We're very excited that David will be heading up our equities investment team, said Chief Investment Officer Mark Jordahl.  He brings both passion and a disciplined approach to the investment process.  We believe that his excellent leadership abilities, adherence to fundamental research principles, performance orientation, and collaborative management style will fit well within our investment culture.

Chalupnik will assume his duties on Nov. 18.  He will maintain offices in both the Minneapolis headquarters office and Milwaukee.
