U.S. Bank received an appreciation award from the Lake Street Council in Minneapolis recently. The award was given to U.S. Bank during the council’s annual meeting at the Lyndale VFW.
“This award is an expression of thanks from the Lake Street Council to U.S. Bank and its commitment to Lake Street,” said Joyce Wisdom, executive director of the Lake Street Council. “U.S. Bank donated office space to our organization and provided much needed financial support in the form of equity equivalent investments for the corridor during road construction. During construction, the U.S. Bank team shared parking spaces with other local businesses. They also participated in the celebration to welcome Metro Transit Commission buses back to Lake Street when construction was complete.”
“The Lake Street community is a vibrant and vital part of Minneapolis,” said Christine Hobrough, regional market manager in the Twin Cities. “The U.S. Bank team in the Lake Street neighborhood has been led by Marty Shimko, branch manager at the 919 E. Lake Street location. U.S. Bank proudly supports the Lake Street Council and its efforts to make the neighborhood stronger.”
Accepting the award on behalf of U.S. Bank were Hobrough; Shimko; Vicki Shipley, vice president and community development manager; Rafael Quintero, community business banking officer; and Matt Thompson, metro district manager for retail banking.
U.S. Bancorp is the 6th largest financial holding company in the United States.
