Candor Drives Good Counsel

Michael Poulter, Market Leader, Salt Lake City

Although Michael Poulter liked being an attorney, the prospect of a career spent researching and writing ultimately didn’t appeal to him. “When the opportunity for partnership was offered, I honestly couldn’t see myself doing that for 30 years. I realized I enjoyed working with people face-to-face much more, and addressing broader issues beyond estate and tax planning.”

So Mike switched careers and joined a large banking organization as a trust portfolio manager. He subsequently came to U.S. Bank as manager of the Utah trust team. Today, he is a Market Leader responsible for delivering Investment Management, Private Banking, Trust and Estate Services, and Wealth Planning to clients of U.S. Bank Private Wealth Management. Mike says he has the best of both worlds — intellectual stimulation and interpersonal connection working with clients who have complex needs and with his team to find potential solutions for those clients.

Mike is a firm believer in clear, candid communication and collaboration. “Clients deserve straightforward answers from professionals whose opinions are based on knowledge and experience. And, because their situations are often complex, clients need a team of people who work together effectively and integrate their solutions. The collegiality of the Salt Lake City team is apparent to our clients. In meetings, it is obvious that we’re not just bringing in a few specialists who work in their own silos. Everyone takes responsibility for our collective success in helping clients work towards their goals.”

Education and community involvement
Helping others work towards their goals carries over into Mike’s work in the community. He serves on the Board of Directors for the McKay-Dee Hospital Foundation and the Children’s Center Foundation, and is president of the Utah Planned Giving Roundtable.

Mike earned his undergraduate degree from the University of Utah and his law degree from George Mason University.
