Some of the corporation’s philanthropic efforts also focus specifically on the needs of military veterans, providing assistance like grants, financial education, and job search tools to members of the United States military who have transitioned to civilian life. This commitment was evident in December of 2016, when Wells Fargo donated a mortgage-free home in North Haverhill, New Hampshire, to retired Army Ranger Jeremy Dolan, who was injured during his second tour in Afghanistan. Mr. Dolan and his wife will live in the home with their infant daughter and two dogs.

Veteran financial professional Eric Fornell serves as vice chairman of investment banking at Wells Fargo Securities in New York, New York. Responsible for the bank’s successful expansion into Canada, Eric Fornell personally oversaw the company’s Calgary- and Toronto-based teams.

In recent years, American financial institutions have enjoyed a great deal of success moving north into Canadian markets. Merrill Lynch and Citi were among the first to make the jump, beginning in 2009. Wells Fargo is one of the more recent adapters, but the investment giant has made significant progress in Canada already.

Part of Well Fargo’s success comes from the sheer amount of capital it has to lend in Canadian markets. Company representatives made the rounds with major Canadian companies early in the game, emphasizing the big bank’s ability to deliver. Wells Fargo also has been able to leverage its holdings in tangible assets including rail and pipelines, which appeal to big names in Canadian and American business.
