Wells Fargo cuts 69 executive jobs

News Hour:

Wells Fargo & Co said on Friday it is cutting 69 executive jobs at its retail unit, as part of a restructuring in the division.

Some of the executives will retire with benefits while others may find positions elsewhere within the bank, said Wells Fargo spokesman Paul Gomez, reports Reuters.

Some of the executives may leave the bank, Gomez added.

“We have just completed the process of consolidating the Regional President and Area President roles into a new position, Region Bank President,” Mary Mack, senior executive vice president for community banking, said in an internal memo seen by Reuters.

There will be 91 executives in the position that was newly created as part of the reorganization.

News of the scandal-hit lender cutting senior executive jobs was earlier reported by Bloomberg.

Wells Fargo has been engulfed in scandal since September, when it reached a $190 million settlement with regulators over complaints that its retail banking staff had opened as many as 2.1 million unauthorized client accounts.

Wells Fargo shares ended down 2.6 percent on Friday.
