Jonathan Velline makes an impassioned case for maintaining a local presence in customers’ neighborhoods.

“If you think about the lives of our customers, they’re not shut-ins. They get out to work, to shop, to play,” said Velline, head of store and ATM strategy at the $1.69 trillion-asset Wells Fargo. “We’re part of a customer’s traffic pattern. We’re not just going to be a bank that’s at the other end of a call. We’re going to be in the community, we’re going to be volunteering in that community, investing in that community, and we hire from that community.”
