NEW YORK, NY, Feb. 12, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- via NEWMEDIAWIRE – Diane Schumaker-Krieg, formerly Managing Director and Global Head of Research, Economics & Strategy for Wells Fargo Securities, LLC (WFS), is joining the Aiera board as Independent Director.

Diane brings over 30 years of leadership experience on Wall Street and was recognized by American Banker as one of the “25 Most Powerful Women in Finance” for 9 consecutive years (2010 – 2018).

She co-chaired the WFS Diversity & Inclusion Council and created the Managing Director Promotion Committee, which she chaired for 10 years. Diane served on the Wells Fargo & Company Management Committee, as well as the Wells Fargo Securities Board of Managers, responsible for the strategic direction, governance, regulation & compliance oversight, and human capital leadership of the subsidiary’s ~4500 team members. Prior to Wells Fargo, Diane was co-Head of U.S. Equity Research for Credit Suisse Group AG.

Diane joins the board with Logan Allin, General Partner at Fin Venture Capital, and Chip Hazard, General Partner at Flybridge Capital. Additionally, participating in a board-observer capacity, are Joe Boerio, Senior Vice President & Chief Technology Officer of Franklin Templeton, Miki Edelman, Head of Strategic Client Solutions for Macquarie Group, and Gavin Skinner, COO of Citi Research.
