The head of markets clearing and futures execution at Wells Fargo, George Simonetti, has left the bank, according to a spokesperson.

Simonetti left the bank in June after a 27-year career with Wells, which culminated in him taking the top job in clearing in 2012. Based in Charlotte, North Carolina, Simonetti was responsible for all over-the-counter and listed derivatives clearing for both the bank’s house account and for clients, according to his Tumblr blog.
