SAN FRANCISCO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--To keep pace with growing demand in the Golden State, Wells Fargo & Company (NYSE: WFC) said today it has formed a Treasury Management California Sales Region. Jeff Tinker, a company veteran and longtime Bay Area resident, has been named sales manager of the new region.
The new California Region includes an expanding team of 80-plus sales consultants and sales analysts who serve the Treasury Management needs of middle market and small business customers statewide. Local teams provide customers a comprehensive suite of products and services to meet their needs, from managing seasonal sales fluctuations and expanding into overseas markets to improving working capital performance. An extensive customer engagement process enables Treasury Management to discuss recommendations with customers to help them keep pace with changing market conditions and business priorities.
“Creating this Treasury Management region helps us meet the needs of our existing customers and keep pace with the increasing number of companies who are joining us as customers in California,” said David Trotter, executive vice president and head of Treasury Management Sales for Wells Fargo. “Jeff knows our Treasury Management products and services, our customers, and California – he’s the ideal leader for this new region.”
Tinker, a senior vice president since 2003, most recently managed the Customer Advisory Council, Technical Product Consulting, and Customer Ethnography teams for Wells Fargo Treasury Management. Before that, he led the company’s Online Merchant Services Group and served in the Executive Office for Card Services.
Tinker – who earned a bachelors’ degree in Managerial Economics from the University of California at Davis – first worked for Wells Fargo from 1991 to 1994. He then earned an MBA from the Haas School of Business at the University of California, Berkeley. From 1995 to 1998, Tinker worked as a senior manager for Andersen Consulting. He co-founded eHow, Inc., in 1998 and served as its chief operating officer through 2001. Tinker rejoined Wells Fargo in 2001.
Wells Fargo Treasury Management products and services help large corporate, middle market, and small business customers efficiently manage their businesses and financial assets by optimizing working capital, improving cash forecasting and visibility, increasing control and compliance, and managing an ever-broadening set of risks, including fraud. Wells Fargo received an A+ average in the Product category of the 2010 Phoenix-Hecht Large Corporate Quality Index and an A average in the Middle Market Quality Index Survey – the highest average grades of all banks in the survey.
