Scott Dillon
CIO of the Year

Scott Dillon, Executive Vice President, Chief Technology Officer, and Head of Technology Infrastructure Services, Wells Fargo

Dillon has helped to focus the organization on standardizing and modernizing technology across the bank, with the goal of reducing risk and costs through simplification. Oracle solutions play an important role in Wells Fargo’s strategy to organize IT into service areas versus line-of-business responsibilities to streamline the delivery of shared services across the bank. Dillon leveraged Oracle Exadata Cloud services for the consolidation and modernization of more than 5,000 of Wells Fargo’s Oracle databases—a project seen as one of the most successful IT initiatives at Wells Fargo today.

To support this transformation, Meyers has focused on the intersection of people, process, and technology. Specifically, Meyers implemented Oracle Cloud, moving to managed data centers to free resources, and moving disaster recovery to the cloud to give the company more capital and visibility into recurring revenues.
