NAPLES, Fla. -- February 4, 2013

U.S. Bank, ranked among the top 20 U.S. wealth managers, announced today that
it is expanding and relocating the Naples office of The Private Client Reserve
of U.S. Bank to Mercato. The office of 10 investment and private banking
professionals offers investment management, private banking, trust and estate
services, financial planning, and multigenerational wealth planning. The
office reports to Sandra Fleming, Florida market leader for The Private Client
Reserve of U.S. Bank, part of U.S. Bank’s Wealth Management Group serving
clients with more than $1 million in individual or family wealth. Fleming
reports to Heidi Steiger, East Region President of The Private Client Reserve.

“The expansion and relocation of our Naples office reflects U.S. Bank’s
continuing commitment to high-net-worth clients in Florida,” Steiger said. “We
are also offering full-service banking in the new Naples office to meet the
banking needs of our wealth management clients.”

The Private Client Reserve’s Naples office, which has served the Naples area
for more than 10 years, is aggressively adding additional wealth management
professionals to serve its fast-growing base of clients and prospects in
Naples and the surrounding area. The most recent additions are Jack Randall,
senior vice president and wealth management advisor who joined the firm from
Wells Fargo’s Abbott Downing office in Naples; Jason Philips, private banker
from U.S. Bank Commercial Banking in Columbia, Mo.; Dana Lazich, wealth
management banking associate from SunTrust in Naples; Jonathan Wheeler, wealth
management banking associate from Lexington Asset Management in Naples; and
Jeanne Melheim, a new trust associate who joined the firm from U.S. Trust in
Naples this month.

“We are delighted to have these new wealth management professionals with such
deep experience join our Naples office,” Fleming said. “They all have
extensive experience in serving the wealth and investment-management needs of
individuals, families, business owners, entrepreneurs, corporate executives
and non-profit organizations.”

The Private Client Reserve’s Naples office has traditionally been a major
supporter of the Naples community. In 2011, the office made a $100,000
donation to the Golisano Children’s Museum of Naples to sponsor the U.S. Bank
Entry Way. In December 2012, the Naples office sponsored a holiday gift
exchange party for 130 children and their families at the Golisano Children’s
Museum as part of the Legal Aid Service’s “Adopt a Family” holiday gift
program. The Naples office also sponsored the 13^th annual Naples Winter Wine
Festival, ranked by Wine Spectator as the most successful charity wine auction
in the nation, in January of this year. The proceeds of the wine festival will
benefit the Naples Children and Education Foundation, which serves
underprivileged and at-risk children. The Naples office also sponsored the
event last year.

The Private Client Reserve’s new Naples office is located at 9105 Strada
Place, Suite 3200, in Mercato. Plans are being made for a series of color
photographs by the artist Christopher Rauschenberg, son of Robert
Rauschenberg, to be exhibited throughout the new office.
