Entrepreneurial Leadership Circle members are invited to a round table coffee discussion with Laura Schulte. This session will provide members with the opportunity to network, strategize and share ideas and experiences with Schulte and one another.
As president of Wells Fargo's Eastern Community Bank, Schulte leads 14 states and the District of Columbia, 32,000 team members, more than 2,700 banking stores and 4,600 ATMs. "Laura Schulte is known for her visionary leadership in guiding the final phase of the largest retail bank conversion in U.S. history, among other initiatives at Wells Fargo," said Pamela Davies, president of Queens. "Since relocating to Charlotte, she has been tirelessly dedicated to our community."
She is involved in various local community and charity organizations. Schulte serves on the boards of the Foundation for the Carolinas, Charlotte Center City Partners, the Bechtler Museum of Modern Art, the University of North Carolina at Charlotte, the Executive Advisory Board for Envision Charlotte and the Strategic Advisory Board for the Charlotte Freedom School Partners. She is also the executive advisor for Wells Fargo's Women's Team Member Network.
Under Schulte's leadership, in 2012 Wells Fargo contributed nearly $98 million in grants to non-profits in the Eastern region. East team members volunteered more than 400,000 hours for the causes they care about.
In her tenure with Wells Fargo spanning more than 20 years, Schulte has held a variety of Community Banking leadership positions, as well as various management positions in Finance, Credit Review and Internal Audit. Prior to assuming her current position in January 2009 when Wells Fargo's merger with Wachovia became final, she was president of Wells Fargo's Western Region.
Each hour-long class is taught by faculty from The McColl School of Business at Queens University of Charlotte. The series is free and lunch is provided. View Event
