U.S. Bank Names Mike Michael New Portland Market President


U.S. Bank has named Ralph S. (Mike) Michael to lead commercial banking and serve as the market president for U.S. Bank in Portland. Michael succeeds Joseph M. Otting who was promoted to lead all commercial banking efforts for U.S. Bank in its eastern U.S. territory. Michael begins his work in Portland on Monday, Aug. 11.

"Mike brings tremendous attributes to this position, both personally and professionally," said David I. Rainer, head of commercial banking in U.S. Bancorp's western region. "His work both in the financial services industry and in the community is admired by many who have known him over the years, and I am thrilled that his talents and energy will now be devoted to U.S. Bank customers, employees, community stakeholders and shareholders in Portland. Mike is a 'roll-up the sleeves and let's get to work' type of banker who will spend most of his time working with customers, talking and visiting with employees and getting to know the Portland community and its leaders."

A 28-year banking veteran, Michael, 48, most recently worked for PNC Financial Services Group in Pittsburgh, where he was executive vice president and group executive leading the company's private client banking, capital markets, large corporate banking and leasing businesses. In prior positions, Michael also led treasury management and was instrumental in creating PNC's electronic invoicing and payment presentment system. From May 1992 to February 1996, Michael was market president overseeing PNC Bank in Ohio and northern Kentucky.

In addition to his successes in banking, Michael is an active community leader, an area that he strongly believes in and will continue with his new responsibilities in Portland. Michael is past chairman of the Greater Cincinnati United Way campaign, vice chairman of Cincinnati Business Committee and has served on numerous local boards throughout his career including Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh and Xavier University.
