U.S. Bank Taps Timothy Shafer to Lead Foreign Exchange Department

MINNEAPOLIS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Feb. 28, 2007--U.S. Bank has promoted Timothy Shafer to senior vice president and head of its foreign exchange department. He succeeds Pat Noble, who retired after 32 years with the company.

Shafer, 45, has been with U.S. Bank since 2004. Prior to this promotion, he managed the foreign exchange sales group for U.S. Bank, with teams in Minneapolis, St. Louis, Milwaukee, Seattle, Portland and Los Angeles. Prior to joining U.S. Bank, he worked for Bank One (now JP Morgan Chase) where he served in the foreign exchange group for nearly 20 years, culminating in his role as national middle market sales manager. He has 22 years of experience in the industry, with special expertise in foreign exchange sales, trading and international credit.

Shafer will oversee a team of 26 foreign exchange professionals offering a full line of foreign exchange risk management products. Among them are inter-bank trading, currency options and foreign exchange sales and advisory services.

"I am delighted for Tim to have this opportunity to take the leadership reigns for our foreign exchange business," said Dennis Battles, executive vice president in U.S. Bank Corporate Banking. "He has consistently out-performed in his sales management role which, along with his depth of experience, puts him in a unique position to take us to the next level of success in this business."

Shafer earned a bachelor's degree in business administration from Bowling Green State University in Bowling Green, Ohio, and has completed coursework in European business and culture at Ecole Superieure du Commerce de Nantes in Nantes, France. A native of Mt. Vernon, Ohio, Shafer now lives in Minneapolis.
