Wells Fargo Names Pennsylvania Banking Veterans to New Commercial Banking Advisory Board

Stocks in this article: WFC

To help further expand the company’s position as the No. 1 middle market commercial lender in the region, Wells Fargo (NYSE:WFC) announced today the formation of an Executive Advisory Board for its Commercial Banking operations in Pennsylvania. The company has tapped Edward Ryan and Willard J. Martin, Jr. to serve in Philadelphia and Pittsburgh, respectively.

Ryan, a stalwart of Philadelphia banking and a community leader, will support the growth strategy of Wells Fargo’s Philadelphia Regional Commercial Banking Offices. Meanwhile, Martin, a 40-year banking industry veteran, will focus on a broad array of middle market companies in Pittsburgh and surrounding communities.

“Pennsylvania is a large and growing market for Commercial Banking at Wells Fargo, and our customers will benefit from Ed’s and Will’s expertise and experience,” said Susanne Svizeny, Commercial Banking division manager for the Pennsylvania, Delaware, and Eastern Canada Region.

Wells Fargo’s approach to strategic growth through an Advisory Board in key cities was launched in Boston in 2013. Since the Board’s inception, the New England region has seen a number of new opportunities for business development and growth in the market. With the early success of the Advisory Board model, the company is eyeing additional markets for the establishment of Commercial Banking Executive Advisory Boards.

A 45-year industry veteran, Ryan began his banking career in Philadelphia as a vice president and relationship manager with Continental Bank. He spent more than 20 years with Wells Fargo predecessors Corestates Bank and First Union National Bank, focusing on middle market companies in Pennsylvania. In 2001, he was named senior vice president of business development with Fleet Bank. He then served as executive vice president and director of commercial banking with Citizens Bank of Pennsylvania. Ryan was most recently vice president of business development with Elliott-Lewis Corp.

Ryan holds a bachelor’s degree in economics from Mount St. Mary’s University in Emmitsburg, Maryland, and attended the Stonier Graduate School of Banking. He also attended Harvard Business School through Royal Bank of Scotland. A longtime Philadelphia resident, Ryan serves on several civic committees including The Free Library of Philadelphia, Philadelphia Museum of Art, The Wistnar Institute, and The Franklin Institute. He currently serves on the board of Delaware Valley Industrial Resource Center.
