Wells Fargo Banker Brenda Ross-Dulan On Promoting and Supporting M/WBEs

brenda ross dulanBanker Brenda Ross-Dulan pushes the catchphrase of giving back to the community a step further when she advocates the notion of starting and running a business to eager millennials as well as seasoned business owners.
The executive vice president and regional president of Wells Fargo’s Southern New Jersey region said giving back and sharing is just part of the process. ?I tell clients and others to make it a mandate to leave someone else better off than you were when you started out,? Ross-Dulan. The outspoken bank executive was honored last week at a private business luncheon at the Crowne Plaza Hotel-Princeton in Plainsboro, N.J. The community service award acknowledges Wells Fargo for its undulating support?under Ross-Dulan’s niche guidance and steely direction– to fostering growth and sustenance to minority and women-owned business enterprises (M/WBE’s) throughout the state of New Jersey and the northeast.

?If we all make a commitment to make sure that those coming up behind us?in business and the corporate world, will be better off than we were in the beginning, we are doing our job,? she said in a recent interview with TNJ.com. Ross-Dulan added, ?As a leader, I provide them with the foundation {funding} and skills that enable them to be successful in their business.? Ross-Dulan, who was a 2014 Network Journal 25 Influential Black Women in Business honoree, said approaching life with a positive and the glass-is-half-full approach to life is more productive. ?How people feel about themselves in their situation is tied to how well they perform at work and in business,? she said.

Lastly, Robert Warrington, an associate at World Financial Group?a New York City-based financial services company and an attendee at the event, said enterprising bankers like Ross-Dulan give emerging entrepreneurs the much needed financial resources to build their business. ?Access to capital is the most common complaint we hear from entrepreneurs,? Warrington said. ?Bankers like Ross-Dulan and Wells Fargo offer hope to upstarts and business owners.?
