Often confused with a former Governor of Minnesota, Jim’s professional life is, instead, fully occupied as Senior Vice President for Wells Fargo’s (San Francisco, CA) WellsSecure® identity assurance services business unit. WellsSecure is part of Wells Fargo’s International Financial Services Division.
Jim is active in eBusiness industry initiatives including membership on NACHA’s Internet Council (Chair, Bank Authentication Forum), the Liberty Alliance Identity Assurance Expert Group, the United States Council for International Business (USCIB), and the Association for Finance Professionals (AFP). He is a frequent speaker/presenter at financial services and customer business conferences covering opportunities for converging critical customer business processes with financial services offerings.
Jim’s 27-year banking career includes leadership of commercial banking, relationship management, marketing and technology management functions at Wells Fargo, First Interstate Bank and Bank of America. It is not true that Bank of America recruited him directly from his kindergarten’s graduation class; rather, he tarried a few years in academia after graduation from the University of Southern California.
