Wells Fargo names lead region president for Northeast community banking

Wells Fargo & Co., the San Francisco-based bank with a strong presence in New Jersey, has named a new lead region president for Northeast community banking, an area that includes New Jersey.

David Miree, who will be based in Philadelphia, had been lead region president for community banking in the Texas region for the past two years before moving to the Northeast this summer.

He is no stranger to the area, however, having served as executive vice president and region president for the bank for its Philadelphia/Delaware market.

“I am pleased to be back in the Northeast, where I have spent a number of years during my banking career,” he told ROI-NJ in a statement. “I look forward to working with my team across the region to ensure we are helping our customers, individuals and companies, to reach their financial goals and dreams, no matter what stage they are in life.”

New Jersey’s community banking region bank presidents — John Zimmerman in South Jersey, Carlos Arroyo in Central Jersey, Azhoon F. Abdulghani in the Gateway area and Greg White in North Jersey — will report to Miree.

The Northeast region includes about 678 retail branches as well as other locations, including 285 in New Jersey, and has 5,800 employees and $62 billion in deposits, Wells Fargo said.
