Wells Fargo Insurance, the fifth largest insurance broker in the world, serves
retail consumers, high net worth individuals, small businesses, as well as

“As we continue to strengthen Wells Fargo’s Insurance operations, we have
reorganized our leadership to better serve our customers,” said Schupbach.
“Under Anne’s direction, I’m confident the personal and small business
insurance division will continue to grow as we leverage Wells Fargo’s strong
culture of cross-sell, and partner more closely with the company’s business
and retail banking groups to provide our customers with improved access to the
insurance products they need.”

Most recently, Doss led the Insurance National Practices and Special Risk
group, which provides resources for Wells Fargo’s property and casualty and
employee benefit units, as well as life insurance, international broker
network and third party administrator retail operations. She was responsible
for growing the Special Risks group, which provides targeted insurance
programs to industries such as real estate, health care, public entity,
aviation, and hospitality. Prior to joining Wells Fargo, Doss was president of
Wachovia Insurance Services where she managed the commercial property and
casualty insurance, personal lines, employee benefits, and life insurance
operations.

Doss succeeds Neal Aton, who will remain with Wells Fargo Insurance and
continue to lead several key business initiatives through 2013. Aton first led
the personal and small business insurance operations from 2005-2009 before
also managing Wells Fargo’s Commercial Brokerage division from 2009-2012. He
