Kirk Clausen came to Las Vegas from Sioux City, Iowa. Inspired by his father who was a labor leader, he is committed to helping others in Southern Nevada.
“My father would always make Shrine Circus tickets available to children in the Sioux City School District,” said Kirk. “He always made it a goal to give back to the community.”
Originally Kirk planned to study children’s dentistry and worked the overnight drive up at the bank as a way to pay for college.
“Dr. Papenfuss at Morningside College Business School got me focused on a career in banking instead of dentistry,” said Kirk.
In his role, Kirk works to ensure that the 3,700 team members across the state have the tools and resources they need to accomplish the mission of helping Wells Fargo customers succeed financially.
“Everyone from our tellers to our bankers to our leadership are all team members working towards a common goal,” said Kirk. “Our customers trust us to help them with their financial needs. That is something we do not take very lightly.”
Kirk has been giving to United Way ever since his early days in the banking industry while in college. He LIVES UNITED by asking others to join him to make the community a better place to call home.
“I also advocate for the United Way. Volunteerism and giving back to the community is very important to me,” said Kirk. “I am fortunate to work for a company like Wells Fargo that wants us to make our community a better place.”
