Wells Fargo names new leader for Commercial Banking’s Hispanic segment

Wells Fargo recently announced it has a new managing director, responsible for driving strategies to meet the unique needs of Hispanic-owned and -led businesses for Commercial Banking.

Bernie Ramos, a 16-year veteran of Wells Fargo, is taking on a new role at the bank and will serve as Hispanic segment leader within its Commercial Banking division.

Wells Fargo Commercial Banking provides lending, Treasury management, deposit products and capital markets solutions to companies in the $10 million to $2 billion in annual revenue range.

Ramos, reporting to Commercial Banking Diverse Segments Leader Ruth Jacks, has more than 20 years of experience helping middle-market companies succeed financially.

In his new position, Ramos will transition from his current market executive role in the Local Governmental Banking division, which he has held since 2016, to manage new client acquisition and to deepen relationships with Hispanic clients and prospects.

Ramos joined Wells Fargo in 2007 as a relationship manager, covering New York, New England and the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico. Prior to Wells Fargo, he was a market executive at Bank of America covering New York and New England and held various positions with Fleet Bank.

Ramos’ new role further demonstrates the bank’s commitment to supporting the Hispanic market. This move comes on the heels of Wells Fargo’s appointment of Patty Juarez as the new head of Hispanic/Latino Affairs earlier this year.
