From Army officer to pro golfer to banker: Meet Wells Fargo’s new Denver-based commercial banking leader

Before launching his career in banking, Ralph Hamm served as an Army officer and traveled throughout the country as a professional golfer. “It's okay to fail and you can learn a lot from that,” Hamm said on what he learned from his professional golf career. “Adversity is a good thing.” Hamm was recently appointed the new commercial banking division executive for the mountain division for San Francisco-based banking giant Wells Fargo (NYSE: WFC), amid the restructuring of some of its business segments announced last week.  He was the division manager in the former middle market banking group in Portland, Oregon before taking on his new role.
