Leaving a legacy of health and hope

After losing her husband Mike to cancer, Kathie Heimerdinger and her children established The Heimerdinger Foundation, created in part to increase awareness of healthy eating to support the treatment of cancer. In November 2012, Kathie launched the non-profit foundation’s Meals 2 Heal initiative which offers healthy meals free of charge for cancer patients and their families in the Nashville area to help them fight the disease, just as Kathie believes dietary changes helped her husband. As part of Meals 2 Heal, high school students prepare the meals while learning about the components of a healthy diet. We are pleased that the U.S. Bank Private Client Reserve, through its Entertainment and Pro Sports group, was able to assist Kathie with personal financial matters following Mike’s death, as well as with The Heimerdinger Foundation’s financial services needs.

Corporate Trust offices growing, excelling

U.S. Bank has exhibited a long-term commitment to the corporate trust business — it takes expertise, remarkable service delivery and scale to do it well. One example of our commitment to the corporate trust business is the growth and investment in our Charlotte office, established in 2006 with our corporate trust group. U.S. Bank has expanded in Charlotte by adding capital markets, corporate banking, corporate real estate and a credit group.

Our London office received the No. 1 trustee rating in two categories — collateralized mortgage-backed securities (CMBS) and auto asset-backed securities (ABS) — in the 2012 European Structured Credit Investor’s Survey. The office also sponsored the IMN Global ABSTM 2012 conference in Brussels in June, one of the largest securitization conferences in the European capital market.
