Wells Fargo & Co. on Wednesday named a pair of former Wachovia Corp. executives, Robert Engel and Jonathan Weiss, to run its investment banking and capital markets businesses.

Each had held similar jobs at Wachovia, which San Francisco-based Wells bought last month.

Stephen Cummings, who was head of Wachovia's corporate bank, declined to join Wells after the merger. Quinten Stevens, who had run Wachovia's equities division, also declined to join the post-merger company, Wells said in a press release.

Meanwhile, the California bank's Mike Johnson will head the corporate banking division, and its John Shrewsberry will manage the securities investment group, which now includes Wachovia's equities, fixed-income, capital management, and research businesses.
