Wells Fargo says two execs in Charlotte out after scandal

CHARLOTTE, NC (Deon Roberts/The Charlotte Observer) - Two high-ranking Wells Fargo executives in Charlotte are no longer with the company, the latest changes at the top of the bank since a sales scandal broke more than a year ago.

Tracy Kidd, former head of human resources for Wells' community banking segment, and Deanna Lindquist, former head of a legal department group responsible for employment matters and other areas, no longer work for the company, Wells spokeswoman Aimee Worsley confirmed Monday.

Worsley declined to provide further details on the executives, including why they weren't at the bank anymore, after The Wall Street Journal reported on the development. Kidd and Lindquist could not be reached for comment.

Kidd was among top executives named in a report the San Francisco-based bank's board released last April detailing findings of the board's investigation into the scandal. The investigation was prompted by September 2016 revelations that Wells employees for years had been opening accounts without customer knowledge to meet sales goals.
