MINNEAPOLIS (December 10, 2019) – U.S. Bancorp announced today that its board of directors has elected John P. Wiehoff as a director of the company, effective Jan. 20.

Wiehoff is chairman and retired chief executive officer of C.H. Robinson Worldwide, Inc., a multimodal transportation services and logistics solutions company with annual revenues greater than $16 billion and operations on four continents. He served as president and chief executive officer of C.H. Robinson for 17 years, and prior to that, served in other leadership roles, including chief financial officer. In addition to his chairmanship at C.H. Robinson, Wiehoff serves on the boards of directors of Donaldson Company, Inc., and Polaris Industries, Inc.

“John is an experienced business leader who is known and respected for exceptional performance,” said Andy Cecere, U.S. Bancorp chairman, president and CEO. “Much like the banking industry, logistics has transformed significantly by rapidly incorporating new and evolving technology into its business model. John’s experience in this area, and his belief that technology is put to best use by blending with human relationships and interactions, will be an excellent complement to our board, resource to our management team, and asset to our company.”
