The FINANCIAL -- Wells Fargo & Company on September 11 announced that Investor Relations (IR) Manager John Campbell has been promoted to lead the IR group, effective Sept. 15.
As Director of IR, Campbell succeeds Jim Rowe, who served in IR for over a decade before being promoted in July to lead the company’s new Stakeholder Relations Group.
Campbell has been with Wells Fargo and its legacy banks for more than 20 years in a variety of roles and has served as a manager in the IR group for the last seven years. He will continue to be based in San Francisco and will report to Rowe, according to Wells Fargo.
“John has been an important leader within Investor Relations and is well known to investors, analysts, and other stakeholders,” Rowe said. “I have full confidence in John’s ability to lead the IR effort and expect the transition to be seamless for our stakeholders. He is fortunate to be supported by the strength of the long-tenured Wells Fargo IR team and the engagement of leaders across the company.”
IR, Corporate Communications, and Government Relations & Public Policy make up Wells Fargo’s Stakeholders Relations Group, which was formed to foster a more integrated approach to engaging with its key stakeholders. Led by Rowe, the group partners with other groups in the company to build and execute a comprehensive, fully integrated stakeholder relations program.
“As Wells Fargo continues to focus on rebuilding trust with all of its stakeholders, John and his strong IR team will play a key role in our continuing effort to be open and transparent with Wells Fargo investors, analysts, and our other constituents,” said Chief Financial Officer John Shrewsberry. “John has proven himself to be a terrific partner to me and many other senior leaders within the company, and I look forward to continuing to work with him in his new role.”
Campbell has held various positions in IR, Mortgage, Treasury, Financial Planning & Analysis, and Accounting during his two decades at Wells Fargo. He holds a Bachelor of Science in Accounting from Villanova University and an MBA in Finance from the University of San Francisco.
