Wells Fargo's Schulte to be 2016 Chamber chairwoman

Wells Fargo's East Coast head, Laura Schulte, will serve as the Charlotte Chamber's chairwoman in 2016, the organization announced Wednesday.

Schulte came to Charlotte in 2009, when Wells Fargo acquired Charlotte-based Wachovia. She's immediately delved into civic organizations, and now serves on the boards of the Foundation for the Carolinas, Charlotte Center City Partners, Bechtler Museum of Modern Art, Charlotte Country Day School, and UNC Charlotte.

She will now serve as second vice chairwoman of the Chamber. Michael Tarwater, CEO of Carolinas HealthCare System, is the incoming chairman, and Piedmont Natural Gas CEO Tom Skains will serve after him.
