Wells Fargo adds Duke grad to board

Wells Fargo has added retired PricewaterhouseCoopers partner Howard V. “Rick” Richardson to its board of directors, the bank disclosed in a securities filing Thursday.

Richardson served as PwC's finance and banking leader from 1996 to 2000, among numerous other positions at the firm. He is a Duke University graduate and received a master's degree from Boston University.

“Rick Richardson served PwC for over three decades in a wide range of leadership, audit, and business advisory positions, including as the lead engagement partner for several of PwC’s largest financial services clients,” CEO John Stumpf said in a statement. “Wells Fargo is very fortunate to add Mr. Richardson and his vast knowledge of the financial services industry to the board, and we welcome him to Wells Fargo.”

The move brings the board's membership back up to 16.

Who cares? Does this somehow suggest that Wells Fargo is more committed to Charlotte?
