Madelyn Caple appointed to CPCC Board of Trustees
Madelyn Caple, regional managing director – The Private Bank Greater Charlotte of Wells Fargo, has been appointed to the Central Piedmont Community College Board of Trustees. An appointee of the Mecklenburg County Board of County Commissioners, Caple’s four-year term as a CPCC trustee runs through June 2017.
Caple has worked in her current position since 2009, directing the delivery and overall execution of Wells Fargo’s wealth management strategy in the greater Charlotte market. She began her career in Miami, with Southeast Bank, a predecessor to First Union and Wachovia, in its corporate training program. She held various positions in commercial and wealth segments in Tampa and Boca Raton before transitioning into a leader role in Orlando, in 1999. She relocated to Charlotte in 2004 to combine several wealth teams and oversee the Western Carolina and Upstate South Carolina markets. She has focused exclusively on the metro Charlotte market since 2006.
“We are excited Madelyn Caple has been appointed to the CPCC Board of Trustees,” said Ralph Pitts, board chairman. “Madelyn’s experience and understanding of finance and wealth management will serve the college well as public funding continues to decline.”
Caple’s community involvement includes serving on the CPCC Foundation board and MeckEd board, as a member of the Mecklenburg Cultural Life Task Force, the N.C. Governor’s Conference for Women board of advisors, and as the Arts & Science Council’s community campaign co-chair.
“The college is fortunate to have Madelyn Caple as a member of the Board of Trustees,” said CPCC President Dr. Tony Zeiss. “She knows the college and the community well and will provide great leadership as CPCC enters a period of growth in programs and facilities.”
Caple, her husband, J. Kevin Caple, and their two children reside in Charlotte.
