WellsFargo Securities, the investment banking and capital markets business of WellsFargo & Company (No. 9 on the DiversityInc Top 50 Companies list), announced that Internet analyst Ken Sena has joined the Global Research, Economics & Strategydivision as managing director and head of Internet Equity Research. He will be based in New York, reporting to Sam Pearlstein and Todd Wickwire, co-heads of Equity Research.

“Ken is an exceptionally thoughtful and thematic analyst and a highly regarded collaborator. These attributes are essential as the Internet takes on ever-increasing importance in how investors think about key investable themes,” said Diane Schumaker-Krieg, global head of Research, Economics and Strategy at WellsFargo Securities. “We see Ken as uniquely suited to lead discussions around these important industry intersections.”

In his new role, Sena will be working in close partnership with Internet and Advertising analyst Peter Stabler, who will continue to provide valuable industry and research insights, particularly around the digitizing media and advertising landscape.

Sena joins WellsFargo after spending seven years heading the Internet equity research effort at Evercore ISI, where his coverage spanned global Internet and included such names as Google, Facebook, Amazon, Alibaba, Priceline, Tencent, Baidu, JD.com, among many others. Prior to joining Evercore ISI in 2010, Sena worked at Credit Suisse and Bear Stearns where he began his career in research in 2007. His career on the research side followed eight years of experience working in a number of digital and corporate strategy roles at MTV Networks and Time Inc. as well as in Investment Banking at Salomon Smith Barney. Sena graduated magna cum laude from the University of Pennsylvania where he received BSE and BA degrees from the University’s Wharton School and the School of Arts & Sciences.

“I’m very excited to be part of the growing, highly respected research platform at WellsFargo,” said Sena. “My team and I look forward to working with the broader WellsFargo technology research group to deliver thoughtful, thematic ideas to our clients during such a dynamic time in the sector.”
