“John brings great depth and experience to this role – in particular, significant insight and expertise in serving clients with complex needs. We are poised for tremendous growth in this area and I’m confident that the momentum we have built will continue into a very promising future under John’s exemplary leadership,” said Mark Jordahl, president of U.S. Bank Wealth Management.

Zimmerman is a Chartered Financial Analyst and holds a bachelor’s degree from the University of Missouri and a master’s degree from Saint Louis University. Community involvement is a passion; he serves on the boards of Boy Scouts of America – Denver Area Council, Seeds of Hope Charitable Trust, the Catholic Foundation of Northern Colorado and the University of Missouri Trulaske School of Business strategic development board.
