The head of Wells Fargo's private wealth management business is leaving the firm several weeks after the bank reorganized the businesses she was hired to oversee, Insider has learned.

Julia Wellborn announced she is leaving Wells Fargo to "pursue opportunities outside of the company​," a spokesperson for the bank confirmed.

Wellborn joined in summer 2019 from Comerica Bank, where she was head of wealth management. The spokesperson confirmed Friday will be her last day.

Wellborn was hired to lead Wells Fargo's private bank and its Abbot Downing business. Last month, the bank retired the Abbot Downing brand and folded it under Wells Fargo Private Bank, which caters to ultra-high-net-worth clients.

"​During her time with wealth and investment management she successfully led the newly combined Wells Fargo Private Bank and Abbot Downing businesses, and served as a steward as WIM undertook significant changes to create an enhanced focus on client experience and increase business efficiency​," the spokesperson said.

Wellborn was previously president of the North Texas region for Wachovia, the bank Wells Fargo during the financial crisis, before she joined Comerica in 2009.

Wells Fargo CEO Charlie Scharf, who was appointed in late 2019, has been remaking Wells Fargo's wider wealth and investment management division.

Scharf tapped former JPMorgan executive Barry Sommers last summer to the lead the division, and in February sold its asset management business to private equity firms GTCR and Reverence Capital Partners for $2.1 billion. The bank has also exited the international wealth management business.
