U.S. Bank Names Chris Heman Market President In Washington

U.S. Bank has named Chris Heman market president for the State of Washington and head of commercial banking in the Puget Sound region effective March 1. Heman succeeds Ken Kirkpatrick, who is retiring.

Heman has been with U.S. Bank for 20 years, and has led its retail branch network in the Seattle-Tacoma area since 2005. His team has been among the top performing regions for U.S. Bank nationwide, and has been the strongest region for small business lending for several years.

“Washington is a vitally important economy in the Pacific Northwest where we see tremendous potential for growth,” said Elliot Jaffee, executive vice president in wholesale banking at U.S. Bank. “Chris has been a key contributor to U.S. Bank’s success in the Puget Sound area and is a respected member of the Washington market leadership team. His knowledge of the region, combined with his experience in banking and commitment to succeed, make him well suited to this new role.”

Heman earned a bachelor's degree in marketing and advertising from Southwest Missouri State University and an MBA from the University of Colorado. He serves as a board member for the Independent Colleges of Washington and is an advisory board member for Seattle Community Colleges. Heman and his wife, Jennifer, live in Everett, Wash., with their two children.

Kirkpatrick will retire after a 41-year career in banking. Kirkpatrick spent his entire career with U.S. Bank and its predecessor Peoples Bank, where he started as a teller. Kirkpatrick rose to serve in leadership positions throughout his career, up to and including his appointment as president at U.S. Bank in Washington in 2002. Kirkpatrick served for six years on the Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco Seattle Branch until 2008. He is chairman emeritus of the board of the Pacific Coast Banking School in Seattle, and has represented the Seattle business community on numerous delegations to countries in Europe and Asia. His involvement in the community is deep, including two terms as board chair at Junior Achievement and as a two-time chair of ArtsFund.
