Wells Fargo's Chereck joins board
"The World Congress on Information Technology and Wells Fargo share a commitment to driving the future of technology innovation," said Robert Chereck, Wells Fargo Commercial Banking and Energy executive vice president for Wells Fargo in Texas. "As the first financial institution to launch internet banking in 1995, sponsoring the forum made perfect sense. It ties in with our strategic initiatives to leverage new technologies to improve customer service. We’re pleased to be the founding financial services sponsor of this event and look forward to making a positive contribution to its success."
