"A native of the area, Greg Collins is a success story of a local boy that rose through the corporate ranks of a Fortune 500 to become Wells Fargo’s area Bank President for Northeast PA. Greg never forgot his roots nor the character and integrity that we are known for in the Valley. He leveraged these strengths in business and channeled them back into the community. Throughout his nearly 30-year leadership career in banking, Greg Collins has been a key champion of the area and a strong NEPA community advocate - inspiring both business leadership and re-setting us all to a higher bar. In his retirement, Greg Collins leaves behind a legacy of achievement and dedication to the Valley."
