PORTLAND, Ore., Apr 04, 2005 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- Portland travelers no longer have to worry if they
forgot to stop at the bank on their way out of town or find a bank
once they arrive. That's because U.S. Bank has opened a branch at
Portland International Airport (PDX) to serve the 13 million people
who traverse the international gateway each year.
Portland officials will formally welcome U.S. Bank to PDX with a
ribbon-cutting celebration on Wednesday, April 6 at 11 a.m. The branch
is located at the north end of the terminal, in front of the security
checkpoint leading to Concourse D and Concourse E.
"We are simply thrilled to partner with the Port of Portland to
bring U.S. Bank to PDX," said Tina Foster, region manager for U.S.
Bank in Portland. "The new location will be an added convenience for
so many of our customers who come and go through the airport every
day. We look forward to serving the 10,000 airport employees, as well
as all of the businesses located at PDX that can take care of all of
their banking needs without leaving the facility."
Selection of the airport for a branch site represents a concerted
effort by U.S. Bank to open offices in more non-traditional locations,
such as university campuses and corporate sites.
Colleen Lawpaugh, who previously managed the U.S. Bank office at
Menlo Park, will now manage the new office at PDX. Lawpaugh has been
with U.S. Bank for 32 years, all in branch banking. She is an
experienced banker and is looking forward to partnering with the
businesses and employees at the airport to serve the travelers.
U.S. Bank will celebrate the opening with prizes, food and special
promotions including a chance to win a $250 shopping spree at stores
in the airport's Oregon Market. The U.S. Bank branch, which opened for
business on March 21, will be open Monday through Friday from 9 a.m.
to 4 p.m.
