Wells Fargo Middle Market Banking announced Tuesday that Baimba Norman has returned to Atlanta to lead commercial lending operations in its Greater Georgia region, which includes all markets in the state outside the seven metro Atlanta counties.
Norman now leads Wells Fargo’s regional Middle Market Banking business, which provides credit, treasury management, and deposit products and services to middle-market companies with revenues between $20 million and $500 million-plus. Those companies are an important engine of job creation for the U.S. economy. More than 200,000 mid-market companies — mostly privately held — generate more than $10 trillion in annual revenues.
“Our commercial operations model is to have local representation backed by specialized resources, whether that’s industry expertise or specific financial capabilities that our bank can provide,” said Brad Marcus, Georgia Division manager for Wells Fargo Middle Marking Banking. “We partner with these resources to deliver comprehensive financial services and solutions to our customers.”
“Baimba is an experienced commercial banker in this region and brings his passion for serving middle-market companies’ financial needs to our mid-market team in Georgia,” Marcus continued. “He will lead this team with integrity, diligence, and a commitment to serving our clients and community.”
Norman began his banking career in Atlanta in 2005 as a financial analyst for the same team that he now directs as regional vice president. After completing the commercial credit-training program in 2008, he moved into the role of relationship manager in Atlanta.
In 2015, Norman relocated to St. Louis to serve as a loan team manager for the Emerging Middle Markets Group, which serves companies with annual revenues between $20 million and $50 million. Immediately before his return to Atlanta, Norman served as senior vice president and loan team manager for the St. Louis Middle Market Banking team.
Norman holds a bachelor’s in business administration from Morehouse College and earned his master’s degree from Georgia State’s J. Mack Robinson School of Business.
