Wells Fargo named Amy Bonitatibus chief communications and brand officer, effective Sept. 12. Bonitatibus will report to Bill Daley, vice chairman of public affairs at Wells Fargo.
Bonitatibus will join Wells Fargo from Chase, the retail arm of JPMorgan Chase, where she served as chief communications officer.
