Bill Mayer, head of Wells Fargo Equipment Finance, has been recognized by the Boston Corporate Finance Community (BCFC), a collaboration of Boston-based companies active in the corporate finance industry, including Wells Fargo.
BCFC honored Mayer for his commitment and passion to supporting the community where he lives and works. Mayer worked closely with Vibrant Boston, a local nonprofit organization whose mission is to engage youth and families in education, enrichment and wellness, to provide a safe out-of-school time environment for young people living in the Lenox Camden Housing Developments in Roxbury, Mass. He also helped launch and establish the Wells Fargo New England Market Reputation Council, known as the New England Partnering Board, to support organizations across New England that focus on education, job training, and affordable housing.
Mayer is also very involved with his alma mater, Penn State, serving as a mentor to students and setting up a scholarship to help high achieving students realize their career dreams. The evening raised nearly $500,000 for More Than Words, a Wells Fargo Foundation grantee that provides career opportunities, life skills and financial capabilities to court involved, homeless and youth in foster care.
