20-year company veteran to lead recently expanded commercial operations in the Palmetto State
Wells Fargo (NYSE: WFC) Commercial Banking announced that Thomas Anderson has been tapped to lead commercial banking operations for South Carolina where it has offices in Charleston, Columbia, and Greenville serving business customers throughout the Palmetto State. He is based in Charleston.
A 23-year finance industry veteran, Anderson previously served as regional vice president of Middle Market Banking in the Midlands and Low country Region of South Carolina. Soon after graduating from The Citadel, Anderson began his finance career in the accounting department of Bulldog Hiway Express in 1996. In 1998, shortly before finishing his MBA at The Citadel, Anderson moved to Arthur D. Little, Inc. as a financial consultant. He joined Wells Fargo predecessor, Wachovia Bank’s Business Banking
team in Charleston in 1999 and has a proven track record as a top performer, relationship builder, and portfolio manager. Anderson has also been an adjunct professor at The Citadel School of Business since 2011, where he has taught courses on bank management, monetary policy, relationship management and negotiations.
In his current role, Anderson now leads Wells Fargo’s South Carolina Commercial Banking business, which provides products and services, including credit and treasury solutions, to customers with annual sales typically ranging from $5 million to $2 billion. With its newly-formed national Specialized Industries group, Wells Fargo also provides expertise across industries including Food, Beverage & Agribusiness, Investor Real Estate, Government, and Technology through its regional presence.
“Our commercial banking business serves South Carolina customers by combining our local presence with specialized resources, whether that is industry expertise or tailored financial solutions for local businesses,” said Suzanne Morrison, head of Wells Fargo Commercial Banking’s Carolinas Division. “Thomas is a longtime commercial banker in this region and he brings passion and proven leadership in serving commercial companies’ financial needs and a commitment to community throughout South Carolina.”
Raised in Atlanta, Thomas moved to Charleston in 1992. Anderson holds both a bachelor’s degree and a master’s degree in business administration from The Citadel. He is a member of the board of directors of Carolina Youth Development Center, a mentor with The Citadel School of Business and a City of Charleston youth football coach.
Wells Fargo donated $5.3 million to 389 South Carolina nonprofit organizations and schools in 2018. In the Lowcountry last year, Wells Fargo supported 73 nonprofits and schools through more than $1.7 million in grants and nearly 9,000 volunteer hours by team members.
