U.S. Bank adding 60 new jobs

U.S. Bank National Association, a subsidiary of U.S. Bancorp and the fifth largest commercial bank in the United States, announced it is growing its risk-focused operations in the Columbus Region, leasing an additional 11,000-square-feet at its Columbus location and creating 60 additional jobs. The company, which is at 8415 Pulsar Place, will invest $433,000 in renovations, IT and training costs.

“U.S. Bank is excited to add new team members and looks forward to building on our foundation in Columbus and Central Ohio,” said Steve Bennett, market president, Central Ohio, U.S. Bank. “When assessing the best long-term economic opportunities in various markets, we realized the finance and accounting workforce in the Columbus market is unparalleled.”

The announcement comes less than a year after U.S. Bank began its risk-focused operations in Columbus with nine employees. Recognizing the opportunity for growth in the Midwest and increased regulatory and customer demand, the company decided to expand in Columbus. Hiring for the new positions will begin in fall 2016.

“The City of Columbus is thrilled that U.S. Bank has chosen to expand in our community,” said Mayor Andrew J. Ginther of the City of Columbus. “These high paying jobs are a testament to the Columbus Region’s highly-skilled population.”
