Wells Fargo Supply Chain Management Manager 3 in West Des Moines, Iowa

At Wells Fargo, we want to satisfy our customers’ financial needs and help them succeed financially. We’re looking for talented people who will put our customers at the center of everything we do. Join our diverse and inclusive team where you’ll feel valued and inspired to contribute your unique skills and experience.

Help us build a better Wells Fargo. It all begins with outstanding talent. It all begins with you.

Enterprise Finance & Information Technology offers technology and services that exceed Wells Fargo customers’ expectations and directly enable them to succeed financially. We interact with customers more than 12 billion times a year through in-store, online, ATM, and telephone transactions. We impact customers directly, through systems availability and security, as well as indirectly, through our business partners who offer and deliver a myriad of products and services that meet customers’ financial needs. We provide a competitive advantage for the company through excellence in fundamentals, integrated partnerships, and our talented and engaged team members.

This management role will report directly to the Head of Supplier Management and facilitate the creation of a new team within the Supplier Management group. The focus of this team will be executing Third Party Risk Management policy requirements on Wells Fargo’s largest third-parties that are utilized across multiple Lines of Business. This role will be responsible for all aspects of organizational change related to the new team; including but not limited to 1) championing awareness of the new group, 2) building the team through hiring or coordinating move-the-lines transactions with HR and the LOB, 3) design and implementation of process and toolkits for the new group and Wells Fargo at large. The initial focus will be moving certain third party risk related activities from a distributed to center-led operating model. Once the team is created, lead a team of individuals responsible for assessing third party risk and performing supplier relationship management for suppliers where it is not practical or effective to perform these duties out of a single line of business.

The role will be responsible for managing a team that effectively uses resources & process to drive optimal risk and delivery related outcomes. A more deliberate, centralized third party risk approach will improve effectiveness of third party risk activities. Also facilitating relationship management duties for suppliers who are not effectively managed reduces Wells Fargo’s risk. By centralizing both our internal third party risk administrative activities, further integrating with SCM processes and utilizing our new method of external data collection, significant efficiencies can be gained while improving our risk posture.

This key management role will:

  • Responsible for leading a skilled team of operational risk professionals to align and execute the Third Party Risk Management program on larger third party relationships that span multiple lines of business.

  • Coordinate relationship management activities across lines of business to ensure TPRM program requirements are met and best practices are followed. These activities include but are not limited to onsite supplier reviews, regular performance reviews, setting performance metrics, coordinating risk acceptance and handling issue escalation, remediating corrective actions, monitoring supplier viability and ongoing program compliance, documenting business process risks and handling invoice allocations.

  • Design and implement processes, job instructions and toolkits to be utilized by both the new team and all Wells Fargo LOB’s when performing supplier relationship management activities.

  • Be accountable to the Head of Supplier Management for the execution and reporting of critical activities performed within this function and championing the vision and strategic goals to be accomplished.

  • Provides leadership by management of relationships and integration/implementation of the program with cross functional business partners to achieve strategic goals.

  • Provides change management strategies and objectives through engagement with various stakeholder groups impacted by centralization as well as changing regulatory expectations

  • Supports Strategic Sourcing with the strategy and negotiations of high visibility, complex supplier agreements to maximize value and minimize risk exposure.

  • Collaborates with Lines of Business executives to understand and manage their third party risk portfolio

  • Approves tools and process improvements to optimize risk efficiencies and measure supplier performance.

  • Responsible for supply chain management strategy development, process disciplines, and implementation of management systems used to achieve desired results.

  • Supports governance and control programs to ensure business continuity, protect company assets, and compliance with corporate and regulatory policies.

  • Accountable for the successful, enterprise and line of business execution of supply chain management solutions.

  • Proactively maintains current understanding of various industry and supply chain management best practices, and risk benchmarks.

  • Oversees third party risk management life cycle activities and identifies new risks as business requirements evolve.
