Wells Fargo CEO to forfeit $41M in incentives,fargo pay amid fake-accounts probe; another exec leaves


Wells Fargo claws back $41M from CEO.

Wells Fargo (WFC) CEO John Stumpf agreed to give up $41 million in stock awards following the board of directors' investigation into the bank's sales practices, the company said Tuesday.

Additionally, Carrie Tolstedt, Wells Fargo's former head of community banking, will give up all her unvested equity awards valued at $19 million and will not receive retirement benefits worth millions. Tolstedt was responsible during the time employees allegedly created sham accounts to meet sales targets until retiring this year. Neither Tolstedt nor Stumpf will receive 2016 bonuses.

The penalties are the result of an investigation by the bank into retail banking matters, which is wrapping up just before Stumpf Thursday is expected to testify before the House Financial Services Committee. Stumpf will not receive a salary during Wells Fargo's investigation.

Both Stumpf and Tolstedt were responsible at a time when allegedly hundreds of thousands of accounts were secretly opened for customers. Thousands of employees were fired for opening the accounts, allegedly done to meet sales targets set by management. The U.S. Department of Labor plans to investigate the bank's workplace practices, Labor Secretary Tom Perez said in a letter Monday to Sen. Elizabeth Warren,D-Mass.

Well, the way they make shows is, they make one show. That show's called a pilot. Then they show that show to the people who make shows, and on the strength of that one show they decide if they're going to make more shows.

Like you, I used to think the world was this great place where everybody lived by the same standards I did, then some kid with a nail showed me I was living in his world, a world where chaos rules not order, a world where righteousness is not rewarded. That's Cesar's world, and if you're not willing to play by his rules, then you're gonna have to pay the price.

You think water moves fast? You should see ice. It moves like it has a mind. Like it knows it killed the world once and got a taste for murder. After the avalanche, it took us a week to climb out. Now, I don't know exactly when we turned on each other, but I know that seven of us survived the slide... and only five made it out. Now we took an oath, that I'm breaking now. We said we'd say it was the snow that killed the other two, but it wasn't. Nature is lethal but it doesn't hold a candle to man.

You see? It's curious. Ted did figure it out - time travel. And when we get back, we gonna tell everyone. How it's possible, how it's done, what the dangers are. But then why fifty years in the future when the spacecraft encounters a black hole does the computer call it an 'unknown entry event'? Why don't they know? If they don't know, that means we never told anyone. And if we never told anyone it means we never made it back. Hence we die down here. Just as a matter of deductive logic.
