Profile: Joe Atkinson
Joe Atkinson wasn’t going to wait to be in banking. The first time he applied to be a teller, he got turned down because he was too young – the bank wouldn’t hire someone under 18. On his 18th birthday, to the day, he showed up in the morning to apply again for a teller position. Needless to say, he got the job. Now, 30 years later, Mr. Atkinson is adjusting nicely to his appointment this year as Wells Fargo’s South Florida Region President.
