Wells Fargo and Company has named Mount Pleasant resident Rick Redden the lead region president for regional banking in the Carolinas.
A 21-year veteran with the company, Redden joined Wachovia as a corporate banker in Winston-Salem. He moved to Charleston, South Carolina in 1996 as the senior banker for commercial banking. Since 2007, Redden has served as regional president in South Carolina.
“I’m excited about the opportunity to lead regional banking in the Carolinas and work with a dynamic and experienced group of Wells Fargo team members who are committed to supporting each other, our customers and our local communities,” said Redden. “I have spent most of my life living in eight communities across the two states, so the Carolinas is a special place for me and my family. I look forward to building on relationships I have with friends, associates and colleagues across North Carolina and South Carolina.”
Redden is the immediate past chairman of the South Carolina Bankers Association, chairman of the Economic Leadership Council of the Charleston Regional Development Alliance, and is part of the Palmetto Business Forum, as well as the Clemson University Board of Visitors. He is a former member of the board of directors for the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation, the Presbyterian College Board of Visitors and the Roper-St. Francis Foundation.
