Jan. 21, 2019:  Congratulations to Jerry Bates on his upcoming (2/1/19) retirement. Here's a portion of his official retirement announcement which was shared internally:

Jerry Bates Retirement In 2019

It’s hard to say good-bye to a great leader and business partner, but it makes it much easier knowing that the person is entering an exciting new phase in life – retirement! Jerry Bates, Manager of the GPS Regulatory Specialties COE, has decided to retire from Wells Fargo in February 2019. J...erry began his Wells Fargo journey in 1985 with the Wachovia Finance group located in Winston-Salem, NC. A few years later, Jerry transferred to a Payroll Manager role leading the Payroll Tax and Accounting team, and he continued in his Payroll career for the next 30 years.

Jerry’s reputation as the consummate professional, providing complex and critical tax leadership that affects all of our team members located in 4,400 tax jurisdictions around the world, is well deserved. He has experienced many changes during his career, which includes several mergers and divestitures, outsourcing and insourcing of payroll, leading various projects during times of change, along with ensuring compliance with our employment tax regulations over his 32 years.

1/7/19 Congratulations to Shirley Clements (Atlanta) on her Dec. 2018 retirement after 47 years of loyal service.

  Congratulations to Vickie Perrell on her 12/31/18 retiremennt.   Vickie joined the bank in 1973.

Veronica Black, Dave Cottterill, John Ferguson and Walt Leonard at Walt's SC home.   Thanks to Veronica for sharing this great picture.

July 20:  Love this picture of retirees Jim Black, Russ Stephenson, E. Lindsey Reed (and his wife Virginia), and Kenton McCartney.  Picture was taken by me (Irma laugh)  We had a wonderful 2 hour visit in Lindsey's Raleigh home sharing all kinds of Wachovia stories.   (the one pic that included moi is too blurry to post crying )

May 27:  Many thanks to Joe Thomas for sharing this photo, and caption. 

Enjoyed dinner with Bob and Sally McCoy last night at Farmington Country Club to celebrate (in advance) his 80th birthday. Very fortunate to have his friendship and advice over 25 years at Wachovia, FSVC and Hovde Private Equity Advisory Board. I hope to have his energy and intellect at 80!
