Mayo joins Wells Fargo from CLSA Americas, where he was a managing director and head of U.S. bank equity research.

In 2013, he was the sole recipient of the CFA Institute’s annual award for ethics and standards of practice, and in 2008, Fortune named him one of “Eight Who Saw the Crisis Coming.” His extensive background includes analyst positions at UBS, Lehman Brothers, Credit Suisse, Prudential and Deutsche Bank. Mayo began his career in 1988 as a bank analyst at the Federal Reserve in Washington, D.C. He received a Bachelor of Science (magna cum laude) from the University of Maryland and a Masters of Business Administration from George Washington University.
“I’m excited by the opportunity to join the Wells Fargo research team,” said Mayo. “My team and I look forward to engaging with clients on the most important themes facing the banking sector and providing them with the independent commentary they have come to expect.”
