Dennis Bolton, SVP – Head of Equipment Management, Wells Fargo Equipment Finance
How long have you been at your current organization?
I have been with Wells Fargo since August 2005 by way of merger with Wachovia. Prior to 2005, I spent 16 years at Fleet Capital and later Banc of America Leasing, which merged in 2003. I just started my 29th year in the business.
What are your responsibilities within your organization?
As Head of Equipment Management, I am responsible for all facets of equipment appraisal/valuation, portfolio management and equipment remarketing across all of Wells Fargo Equipment Finance’s business lines. Additionally, my group helps support our colleagues in these areas across the entire bank footprint.
Describe a typical day or week in your role.
My days usually start early sometime between 5 and 6:30 a.m. depending on the day. The first couple of hours are quiet and dedicated to strategic initiatives, focused, intense projects and general catch-up. Once the day begins, it’s a series of meetings and calls around business strategy and new business initiatives, portfolio performance, compliance and regulatory requirements, pending accounting and policy changes, integration projects and assisting my teams achieve their goals and problem solve.
