Wells Fargo Names Auto Leader

By Staff Writer July 26, 2021

Tanya Sanders will be the new head of Wells Fargo Auto, the company recently announced. She brings over two decades of financial services experience to the role and succeeds Laura Schupbach, who recently announced her decision to retire after 26 years with Wells Fargo.

Sanders has been with Wells Fargo since 2019. Most recently, she led Auto’s Transformation team and before that led Auto’s Underwriting and Fulfillment group. Prior to joining Wells Fargo, Sanders was the managing director of business operations for Chase Auto, where she oversaw shared services operations for retail and private label auto originations. She also held leadership roles at Bank of America and General Electric. She received her Bachelor of Science in mechanical engineering from Clemson University and MBA from the University of Florida. Sanders is the co-chair for Wells Fargo Consumer Lending’s Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Council and a member of the American Financial Services Association board of directors.

“Tanya has been instrumental in laying the foundation for Wells Fargo Auto to leverage more automation and digital capabilities to deliver for our dealers and customers,” said Mike Weinbach, CEO of consumer lending at Wells Fargo. “Her experience and vision, coupled with the strong team she is inheriting, position the business for a bright future.”

Schupbach’s retirement comes after a financial services career that spans nearly three decades. She joined Wells Fargo in 1995 and held senior-level positions across the bank throughout her career. She was selected to lead Wells Fargo Auto in 2017.
