When Mary Mack took on the biggest job of her career last summer, she only hesitated for a moment.
Mack, at the time head of Wells Fargo’s brokerage unit, was preparing to leave in 48 hours for an Alaskan vacation with her husband, when then-President Tim Sloan called to ask if she wanted to instead lead community banking. Mack asked Sloan if it meant she’d have to reschedule or miss part of the excursion, which had been on her husband’s “bucket list.”
“Tim said, ‘No, take your vacation. Enjoy it. Because you’re going to be working your tail off when you get back,’” Mack said Friday during a speaking appearance at a Hood Hargett Breakfast Club gathering at Quail Hollow Club.
