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. Miami Today Reporter Nina Lincoff interviewed Mr. Atkinson in Fort Lauderdale.   To read the full article and the rest of the Miami Today issue, subscribe to e-MIAMI TODAY, an exact replica of the printed edition.
