Wells Fargo names new insurance division head from Charlotte

Wells Fargo has tapped Anne Doss, who is based in Charlotte, to lead its personal and small business insurance division, the bank said Thursday.

In the role, Doss will oversee auto, home, renters, life, umbrella, property and liability insurance to consumers and small businesses. She will report to Laura Schupbach, who heads Wells Fargo Insurance.

“Under Anne’s direction, I’m confident the personal and small business insurance division will continue to grow as we leverage Wells Fargo’s strong culture of cross-sell, and partner more closely with the company’s business and retail banking groups to provide our customers with improved access to the insurance products they need," Schupbach said in a statement.

Doss will still run the bank's life insurance and disability management business. She was president of Wachovia Insurance Services before its merger with the San Francisco bank.

She takes over for Neal Aton, who is moving to another role in Wells Fargo Insurance.

Wells Fargo is the fifth-largest insurance broker in the world.
