Wells Fargo has named a new commercial banking division sales executive for the metro New Jersey and New York region.
The lender on Tuesday announced that it has promoted Adam Kleinman to the role, in a move aimed at expanding the bank’s profile across northern, central and southern New Jersey. His new role is effective Dec. 5.
In his new position, Kleinman will transition from his current business development officer role, held since 2017, to develop, support and lead business development officers, develop strategic sales initiatives and assist in new client acquisition and deepen existing customer relationships across the market, according to a news release. He replaces Tim DiGiulio, who is moving on to develop and lead a sustainable finance advisory team.
Kleinman brings 15 years of experience in commercial banking to his new position, including roles at JPMorgan Chase and Credit Suisse, the news release said. During nine years at Wells Fargo, he has brought new clients spanning the commercial and industrial and investor real estate sectors, having also served as a relationship manager in Wells Fargo’s northern New Jersey office and a strategist on the bank’s commercial strategies team.
Kleinman resides in Bergen County with his wife Jackie and two children, the news release said. He holds a degree in finance from the University of Maryland and an MBA from Fordham University.
