Wells Fargo CEO Stumpf retires effective immediately; Tim Sloan to take over
Wells Fargo said on Wednesday that Chairman and CEO John Stumpf will retire effective immediately in the wake of a sales scandal at the bank. The company’s board of directors elected President and Chief Operating Officer Tim Sloan to succeed him as CEO, while Lead Director Stephen Sanger will serve as the board’s non-executive chairman.

Stumpf was grilled on Capitol Hill as he defended the bank’s sales practices.
