MINNEAPOLIS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Oct. 2, 2006--U.S. Banker magazine has ranked U.S. Bancorp number one in the nation for its team of women in executive positions at the company. The "Top Banking Team" award was announced in the October 2006 issue of the magazine, which also featured two U.S. Bancorp women among the "25 Most Powerful Women in Banking."

Three bank teams were selected based on the combined overall performance of senior women who head business units and functional areas across the enterprise. U.S. Bank nominated a team of women in commercial banking, commercial real estate, consumer banking, corporate banking, payments and wealth management as well as business support units including credit, finance, human resources, legal, risk, technology and operations.

Pam Joseph, vice chairman for payments at U.S. Bancorp, and Diane Thormodsgard, president of U.S. Bank Corporate Trust Services, Institutional Trust and Custody, were named among the most powerful women in banking. Joseph, who was featured on the cover, ranked ninth and Thormodsgard ranked 12th.

"U.S. Bancorp has talented bankers across the company, who believe in this organization and give tirelessly to make it successful," said Richard Davis, president and chief operating officer of U.S. Bancorp.
