U.S. Bank executive Leslie Godridge has received some props for doing good.
The UJA-Federation of New York recently honored Godridge, who has been on American Banker's list of the most powerful women in banking several times, for her professional and philanthropic work.
Godridge serves as a trustee and member of the executive and audit committees for the Museum of the City of New York and Junior Achievement of New York.
The UJA-Federation raises money for organizations that fight poverty, aid the elderly and promote "Jewish life and learning."
Godridge's award was presented at a fundraising event aimed at Wall Street and other banking types. It collected $700,000 for nearly 100 health, human service, educational and community building agencies in New York, Israel and around the world.
Godridge is the head of national corporate and institutional banking at U.S. Bank, a division of U.S. Bancorp (USB), where she helped build operations in New York and Charlotte, N.C. The division operates in more than 20 cities nationally.
Before joining U.S. Bank, Godridge was a senior executive vice president at the former Bank of New York, now Bank of New York Mellon (BK). Godridge was ranked as No. 16 on American Banker's list of most powerful women in banking last year.
