SAN FRANCISCO -- October 29, 2013

Wells Fargo (NYSE: WFC) has named Erin Gore, who was associate vice chancellor
and chief financial officer at University of California, Berkeley, as co-head
of its Education and Nonprofit Banking group. Based in San Francisco, Gore
will help U.S. colleges, universities, and private schools with financial
strategies for managing future growth and making enhancements to existing
infrastructure and facilities. The education and nonprofit business also

“Bringing Erin on board is a huge win,” said Phil Smith, head of Wells Fargo
Government & Institutional Banking. “She has risen to the challenges of the
vital education sector – from both banking and customer perspectives –
throughout her career. Erin's unique experience will help Wells Fargo provide
even better solutions to our education and nonprofit customers nationwide.”

Gore joins JoAnn Bertges, executive vice president, as co-head of Wells
Fargo’s growing higher education and nonprofit services team, which serves
public and private colleges and universities of all sizes, as well as
not-for-profit organizations throughout the United States.

Among “40 Under 40” Bay Area leaders chosen by the San Francisco Business
Times last year, Gore had been U.C. Berkeley’s CFO since 2009. She began her
career with the New York City Council Finance Division in 1996 as a budget
analyst and then spent four years with Moody’s Investor Services as a public
finance analyst. Gore joined the former Banc of America Securities in 2001,
rising to co-head and managing director of its public finance education and
nonprofit team.

“CFOs of colleges and universities face an array of financial challenges, from
privatization of tuition to the growing globalization of higher education,”
said Gore. “The strength and stability of Wells Fargo’s higher education
banking team can help navigate these fundamental changes.”

Gore holds a bachelor’s degree from University of California, Los Angeles, and
a master’s degree from Columbia University’s School of International and
Public Affairs.
