Katz’ career in financial services spans more than 30 years, the majority of which has been in Colorado
KeyBank today named Mike Katz the market president for the Colorado market. As Colorado market president, Katz will drive collaboration and coordination of KeyBank activities and resources in the market, as well as serve as the face and voice of Key in the community.
A Colorado native, Katz previously worked at U.S. Bank for over 17 years in a variety of roles. Most recently, he served as western region manager of asset-based finance for U.S. Bank. He was promoted to president of U.S. Bank’s Puget Sound market in 2015, based out of Seattle. Prior to that, Katz served as the senior vice president and commercial banking manager in Denver.
“We are delighted to have someone of Mike’s caliber join our successful team here in the Colorado market,” says Laurie Muller-Girard, west region commercial banking leader of KeyBank. “As a seasoned corporate banking professional, he has a proven track record of developing strong relationships with the C-suite and is an experienced team leader who will be an asset to our clients here in Colorado.”
Katz succeeds Tom Tulodzieski, who retired earlier this spring after a successful tenure as KeyBank Rocky Mountain region executive and Colorado market president.
“It is with great anticipation that I join the KeyBank family here in Colorado. This is a growth market for Key, and I am looking forward to working with my new colleagues, our clients and community partners to build on the momentum and excitement around KeyBank in Colorado,” says Katz.
Katz’ career in financial services spans more than 30 years, the majority of which has been in Colorado where he first started his career with Wells Fargo.
He holds a Bachelor of Science degree in both finance and accounting from Miami of Ohio University and an M.S. in finance from the University of Colorado, Denver. Additionally, Katz holds a Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA) designation.
An active member of the community, he serves on the board of the Mile High United Way Board of Directors and is involved with various organizations, including the Denver Leadership Foundation. Past board affiliations include the Denver Metro Chamber and Junior Achievement.
