Top Women in Finance 2012: Center Board Member Vicki Shipley

The Minnesota Homeownership Center congratulates US Bank Vice President, and Vice President of the Center’s Board of Directors, Vicki Shipley for being selected as one of Minnesota’s “Top Women in Finance” by Finance & Commerce Magazine.

The Top Women in Finance award is given to principals, partners, executive vice presidents, CFOs, CEOs and managing directors at corporations in the finance industry as well as small and large business leaders throughout the state who have shown innovation, leadership, or some other notable qualities in the area of finance.

In her role as Regional Manager for Community Affairs, Vicki  has worked tirelessly to build strong connections between US Bank (and other financial institutions) and local community-based nonprofits.  As just one example of Vicki’s efforts, Finance & Commerce recognized Vicki’s innovative initiative that allows several community-based organizations to utilize unused US Bank office space.  The Minnesota Homeownership Center is just one beneficiary of this program.

Vicki is not the only connection the Center has with Finance & Commerce’s annual Top Women in Finance edition.  In 2010 (and 2007), another Board Member, Muffie Gabler, was a recipient and this year Commissioner Mary Tingerthal of Minnesota Housing, the state’s Housing Finance Agency that works closely with the Minnesota Homeownership Center on affordable housing issues, was also selected.
