Rose-ParadeAboard its 129th Rose Parade stagecoach and equestrian entry, Wells Fargo & Co., (NYSE: WFC) featured three notable riders—U.S. Marine Corps veteran Simon Kim, small business owner Bianca Vobecky and Wells Fargo team member Gonzalo Aguilar. In honor of the parade’s 2018 theme, “Making A Difference,” each rider represents a real-life example of the company’s commitment to improving the lives of its customers, team members and communities it serves.“We applaud Simon, Bianca and Gonzalo’s achievements, and were honored to have them participate with us on New Year’s Day,” said David Galasso, Wells Fargo’s lead region president for Greater California. “These three remarkable individuals have each beat the odds in their own way, and we are excited to share their stories.”Wells Fargo’s appearance in the 2018 Rose Parade included three of its stagecoaches. For the first time since Wells Fargo has been participating in the parade, each stagecoach was drawn by six horses, rather than four, reflecting the company’s iconic imagery. The first two appeared in the first 25 units. The third was part of the Rose Parade’s closing show, sponsored by Wells Fargo, featuring pop singer Andy Grammer.Fulfilling a passionate dream to serve his country, Simon Kim joined the U.S. Marine Corps in 2006 and was deployed to Iraq in 2007. The lead gunner was awarded the Purple Heart commendation for injuries sustained during his deployment, including a bullet wound to his shoulder, shrapnel injuries and a concussion. In collaboration with the Military Warriors Support Foundation, Wells Fargo presented Kim and his son with keys to a new mortgage-free home. The bank also partnered with the nonprofit and Southern California Honda Dealers Association to surprise Kim with a new payment-free Honda Accord during a float decorating event on Dec. 28.“It’s a privilege to serve our nation’s combat wounded heroes who served for us. However, we can’t do it alone. Together we can accomplish what we can only individually dream, and through collaboration with Wells Fargo, we are proudly improving the lives of our nation’s heroes and their families,” said Ken Eakes executive director of Military Warriors Support Foundation.
