“Texas has a long history of leadership in financial services, attracting major operations for the world’s largest financial services companies, as well as the most innovative startups in the field,” said Governor Abbott. “Already home to the largest workforce in the financial services sector, and as the new frontier for financial technology, data centers, and more, Texas offers opportunities for Fortune 500 operations to grow, and I thank Wells Fargo for their continuing investment in the great state of Texas and the best workforce in America.”
“Currently, most of our 3,000 employees are located in several offices across the Metroplex," said Tanya Sanders, Wells Fargo Head of Auto. “We are thrilled to have a new state-of-the-art campus where we can bring the majority of our local workforce together for an even better employee experience, which prioritizes wellness and sustainability.
