The new chief legal officer has come to the insurer from Wells Fargo. There, she had most recently held the position of executive vice president, deputy general counsel, and secretary. Richter had been in a number of leadership roles in other companies before she moved to Wells Fargo.  Among them included American Express, Capital One, and Lending Club. She is bringing her experience from all her previous roles into her new one at the insurer.

“We are very fortunate to have someone with Tangela’s talents and experience leading our legal, government and regulatory affairs team,” said Combs. As his statement continued, he pointed to her “problem-solving skills” in particular, in addition to Richter’s solid track record proving her capabilities for delivering within a highly dynamic and evolving environment.  Combs predicts that having her as a part of their team “will have a profound impact on our company.”
