Wells Fargo Taps Cavallari to Open Gainesville Office

Wells Fargo has opened a new commercial banking office in Gainesville, FL to meet growing demand from middle market companies in the city and surrounding areas.

Tapped to lead commercial banking efforts in the satellite office is Andrew Cavallari, an 18-year financial services veteran. He relocated from Chicago, where he served as vice president and relationship manager for Wells Fargo’s Chicago regional commercial banking office since 2001. Cavallari began his banking career with Bank of America in Chicago as an assistant vice president in middle market banking.

“As another testament to Gainesville’s growing regional economy, we welcome Wells Fargo’s decision to add a dedicated commercial banking office here,” said Susan Davenport, vice president of economic development for the Gainesville Chamber of Commerce. “Recruiting Andy Cavallari to run this office brings to the region yet another strong business leader with vast experience. We look forward to the opportunities this will afford our regional business community.”

“Gainesville has grown into a substantial market for our commercial customers,” said Madden, a 26-year Wells Fargo Commercial Banking veteran who is based in Jacksonville, FL. “By expanding our presence in this region, we are able to better serve these customers where they live and work.”
