Lisa, Technology Manager

Name: Lisa
Start Date: September 2001
Current Position: Technology Manager
Location: San Francisco, CA
Education: BS in Business Administration, University of Southern California

What do you do in your role?
I’m a Technology Manager. I’m the conduit between our technology infrastructure team and a group of Wholesale lines of business application development groups. We design, size, build, and implement infrastructure solutions in partnership with the Wholesale application teams to deliver value for our customers.

What do you like about it?
I’m constantly being challenged and I’m always learning. One of the most exciting things is being able to contribute on the strategic level and look forward 12, 18, 24 months to what’s coming.

How many different jobs have you had since you joined?
This is my sixth job here. My first position coming out of the Leadership Development Program was managing our middleware services team. One of the exciting parts of that job was feeling I got thrown into the fire, and it was up to me whether I was going to sink or swim. Leveraging resources to make sure I did succeed was one of the most thrilling and challenging times in my career.

Another highlight was managing a team of Information Security Consultants. I would have never guessed seven years ago that I’d be managing a team of 40 information security professionals.

That’s one of the greatest things about Wells Fargo, especially coming in from college: the amount of opportunity, along with the support and encouragement, the fact people here are really willing to help you grow and become successful.

What type of person does well at Wells Fargo?
Somebody who’s committed. This is an organization where individuals are expected to carry their own weight. If you work hard and you do what your role requires, you’re rewarded with more opportunities and increased responsibility.
