AFSA is proud to celebrate the crucial role female executives play throughout the financial services industry. From small companies to large, installment loans to vehicle finance products, female leaders are building the future of our industry. During Women’s History Month, AFSA will be featuring just a small selection of some of the outstanding female leaders in our industry. 

Sharon Mancero
Director
Wells Fargo

Originally from Boston & Long Island, Sharon has lived and worked around the U.S., and now calls Des Moines, Iowa, home. A 26-year career at Wells Fargo in various commercial roles and capacities has provided Sharon the opportunity to learn about many industries and meet some amazing entrepreneurs and business people. Building teams, leading projects and active mentoring has provided Sharon with enormous joys and challenges. Putting the person(s) first has been her fundamental strategy throughout her career.

We asked Sharon what advice she’d give to her younger self, knowing what she knows now.

Go for it; failures are the foundation for your future successes.

On a related note, Sharon loves this quote from Maya Angelou.

“Courage allows the successful woman to fail and learn powerful lessons from the failure. So that in the end, she didn’t fail at all.”
