"Today's appointments represent a natural evolution of executive responsibilities at our company," said Chief Executive John Stumpf in a news release. "They also demonstrate the deep bench of high-caliber leaders at Wells Fargo and the value of rotating them into different roles to effect seamless leadership transitions."

In their new positions Shrewsberry and Sloan will report to Stumpf and serve on the bank's operating committee.

For Sloan, the transition marks a return to his roots at the company. He spent 22 of his 26 years at Wells Fargo in the wholesale banking group, including stints as head of commercial banking and commercial real estate.
