Jeff Shular to Lead U.S. Bank Consumer Banking in Seattle-Tacoma Region.
SEATTLE--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Nov. 12, 2002
Jeff Shular has been named head of retail banking for U.S. Bank in the Seattle-Tacoma area, where U.S. Bank has 92 branch offices.
A 15-year veteran of U.S. Bank, Shular is no stranger to Washington. In 1997, he managed the U.S. Bank branch in Clark County, at which time the branch grew to be one of the company's top performers. His leadership focuses on building partnerships within the bank and within the community, and says his measurement for success is based on exceeding customers' expectations with outstanding service and developing committed teams of employees.
Shular will work closely with Ken Kirkpatrick, U.S. Bank president in Seattle, who contributed to the decision to bring Shular back to the region. "We're thrilled that Jeff is returning to Washington," Kirkpatrick said. "His enthusiasm and sincere interest in Seattle will add to the momentum that has grown in the region as we strengthen our ties and build new relationships in the community."
Shular has held a variety of management positions at U.S. Bank headquarters and in the consumer banking line of business. Most recently, he led U.S. Bank offices in downtown Portland where he was a district manager under the leadership of Tina Foster, head of retail banking at U.S. Bank in Portland. "Our loss is clearly Seattle's gain," Foster said. "Jeff is an experienced banker and leader and has contributed significantly to the success of our region. Seattle is truly fortunate, as they will benefit from Jeff's knowledge and dedication to excellence in building lasting customer relationships."
A graduate of Portland State University with a bachelor's degree in business management and human resource management, Shular also graduated from the Pacific Coast Banking School in Seattle, the School of Bank Marketing in Denver, the NW Intermediate School of Banking in Portland and the U.S. Bank Executive Development Program.
