Jasmine Jirele will lead more than 300 team members responsible for the back-office processing units that directly support fiduciary needs across Wells Fargo, including the Abbot Downing, Corporate Trust Services, Institutional Retirement and Trust, Wells Capital Management and Wealth Management businesses.  

Jirele reports to the head of Wells Fargo Retirement and replaces Rob Prigge, who retired this summer, the company said. She is based in Minneapolis.
