Waco, TX – According to the state officials, Gov. Abbott highlighted how Wells Fargo’s new facility will help expand Texas’ financial services workforce—which is already the largest in the nation—and encourage even more economic growth in North Texas.
The Governor was joined at the groundbreaking by Irving Mayor Rick Stopfer, Wells Fargo President and CEO Charlie Scharf, Irving-Las Colinas Chamber of Commerce President and CEO Beth Bowman, and KDC Real Estate Development and Investments CEO Steve Van Amburgh.
