Baimba Norman returned to Atlanta to lead Wells Fargo‘s commercial lending operations in the Greater Georgia region, which includes all of the state outside the seven metro Atlanta counties.

Norman began his banking career in Atlanta in 2005 as a financial analyst for the same team that he now directs as regional vice president. After completing the commercial credit-training program in 2008, he moved into the role of relationship manager in Atlanta. In 2015, Norman relocated to St. Louis to serve as a loan team manager for the Emerging Middle Markets Group, which serves companies with annual revenues between $20 million and $50 million. Immediately before his return to Atlanta, Norman served as senior vice president and loan team manager for the St. Louis Middle Market Banking team.

“Our commercial operations model is to have local representation backed by specialized resources, whether that’s industry expertise or specific financial capabilities that our bank can provide,” said Brad Marcus, Georgia Division manager for Middle Marking Banking. “We partner with these resources to deliver comprehensive financial services and solutions to our customers.”

Norman will now lead Wells Fargo’s regional Middle Market Banking business, which provides credit, treasury management and deposit products and services to middle-market companies with revenues between $20 million and $500 million-plus.
