U.S. Bank's Maricruz Hill Honored by Minneapolis/St. Paul Business Journal

MINNEAPOLIS, Jul 28, 2006 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- A U.S. Bank employee has been honored by the Minneapolis/St. Paul Business Journal. Maricruz Hill, regional project manager for all U.S. Bank branches in the Twin Cities market, was named one of the Business Journal's Women in Business honorees for 2006. Hill and the other honorees were recognized during an awards luncheon at the Minneapolis Hilton in downtown Minneapolis on July 27. All honorees are featured in the Women in Business special publication in the Friday, July 28 edition of the Minneapolis/St. Paul Business Journal.

"Maricruz is a passionate supporter of U.S. Bank in helping consumers and businesses reach their financial goals," said Christine Hobrough, regional market manager for U.S. Bank in the Twin Cities. "She is an ambassador for the bank and focuses on partnerships in our communities. Specifically, Maricruz connects the financial needs of the Hispanic community and the market resources of U.S. Bank. Her numerous contributions have helped U.S. Bank be the bank of choice for many Hispanics and other minority groups in the Twin Cities. The U.S. Bank team is very fortunate to have her on board."

Hill was named one of the 25 Women to Watch. The Women to Watch award represents women who are on the rise in the Twin Cities' corporate or entrepreneurial scenes and possess impressive track records, leadership qualities, potential and a lot of drive.

Hill's achievements begin with her role as regional project manager in the Twin Cities. U.S. Bank branches in the Twin Cities work within their communities to meet the needs of the diverse population by providing a variety of products and services tailored to their needs. On a daily basis, Hill identifies and creates connections between existing U.S. Bank services and market outreach opportunities.

Hill was appointed by Minnesota Governor Tim Pawlenty in 2004 to serve as a board member of the Chicano Latino Affairs Council. She is also an ambassador and advocate for Capital!, a national loan program with the U.S. Hispanic Chamber of Commerce aimed at lending to small businesses in high growth Hispanic markets. Hill was a contributor in the development of cultural enrichment courses at the Minneapolis Community and Technical College (MCTC) which are available in English, Spanish and Hmong, and helped design on-site training for MCTC students through the Financial Careers Institute, a partnership between MCTC and U.S. Bank.

Hill earned a bachelor's degree with a major in psychology from the InterAmerican University of Puerto Rico in Rio Piedras. She was born in the Bronx, N.Y. She lives in Chaska with her two daughters.
