Pushing to lend to high-tech companies in the Research Triangle region, Wells Fargo has opened a "technology banking group" office in Raleigh, the lender said Thursday.
The location, which will serve the Carolinas, is Wells Fargo's 12th technology banking group office in the U.S.
The technology office is an expansion of a commercial lending office Wells Fargo was already operating in Raleigh.
Wells Fargo has named Matt Godwin, former chief financial officer of Williams Realty & Building Company in Raleigh, to head the new technology operation.
Godwin is a former Wells Fargo employee. He also was a senior auditor for the now-defunct accounting firm Arthur Andersen.
