USHCC to Welcome Wells Fargo CEO Tim Sloan to 2017 National Convention in Dallas

The United States Hispanic Chamber of Commerce (USHCC) is proud to announce that Tim Sloan, CEO and President of Wells Fargo & Company, will join USHCC President & CEO Javier Palomarez for a special “fireside chat” on October 2, as part of the USHCC’s 2017 National Convention in Dallas, TX. In his session with Palomarez, Sloan will discuss leadership, how Wells Fargo is rebuilding trust, the economic outlook, as well as offer insight on the challenges and opportunities facing American businesses.

“The USHCC is delighted to have Tim Sloan join us at this year’s national convention,” said USHCC President & CEO Javier Palomarez. “Tim has brought a new vision and focus to Wells Fargo since taking the helm in 2016. Through his leadership, Wells Fargo is making investments in communities across the country, ensuring American small businesses continue to have access to the capital and resources they need to compete and succeed. Under Tim’s leadership, Wells Fargo understands the engine that drives our economy is small business. Our members are thrilled to hear first-hand from such an industry leader. We look forward to having a robust conversation about a topic so essential to our business community and our country’s future.”

Wells Fargo serves approximately 3 million small business owners across the United States and has loaned more money to America’s small businesses than any other bank (2002-2015 CRA government data). To help more small businesses achieve financial success, in 2014 Wells Fargo introduced Wells Fargo Works for Small Business® – a broad initiative to deliver resources, guidance and services for business owners. In addition, Wells Fargo recently launched its Diverse Segments practice to strengthen its commitment to the Hispanic business community, offering commercial lending expertise to companies with annual revenues of $5 million and above.

The USHCC National Convention brings together Hispanic business owners, corporate executives and members of more than 200 local Hispanic chambers of commerce from across the country, offering the opportunity to establish strategic, long-lasting business partnerships through dialogue, matchmaking and learning. Signature events of the USHCC National Convention include the Million Dollar Club Breakfast (MDC), Hispanic Business Enterprise (HBE) Elite Luncheon, the ERG Summit, the Women in Business and Leadership Luncheon (WIBLL), and the CEO Panel.
