SALT LAKE CITY, Feb. 26, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Zions Bancorporation (NASDAQ: ZION) ("Zions" or "the Company") today announced the upcoming retirement of George M. Feiger, Chief Executive Officer of Contango Capital Advisors, Inc. – a wholly owned wealth management subsidiary of Zions – and his succession by Julie G.

Mr. Feiger has accepted an appointment as Dean of Aston Business School at Aston University in Birmingham, England. His service there will commence upon his retirement from Contango and Zions.

Harris H. Simmons, Zions Bancorporation's Chairman and CEO, stated, "We are very appreciative of George's service to the Company for nearly a decade. He has assembled a strong team of wealth advisors, and has made great progress in building a first-class organization serving the needs of our clients throughout the western United States.

We all join in wishing George well in the new role he will be assuming."

Over the past two years she has demonstrated outstanding leadership in tailoring our product offering to our customers' needs, in rationalizing our wealth management organizational structure and in more closely integrating our wealth management business with our subsidiary banks. We are delighted that she will be assuming greater responsibilities in this new role."
