Carl Reichardt, who as chairman and chief executive of Wells Fargo during the 1980s and introduced a leaner approach to commercial banking that served as a model for the industry, died on July 13 at his home in Belvedere.Stocky, barrel-chested and blunt — “I guess you could call me fun-loving but hard-nosed,” he once told an in-house newsletter — Mr. Reichardt was not well known in the banking community when he was named president of Wells Fargo in 1978.Turning away from Wells Fargo’s aggressive pursuit of global operations and being all things to all customers, Mr. Reichardt shed much of the bank’s international and financial services businesses, slashed costs and refocused on retail banking and a few other activities in its home state of California.Stationed in Long Beach, he met a fellow quartermaster, Patricia Longenecker, whom he married in 1954 and who survives him.Besides his daughter, he is also survived by his sons Carl Jr. and Fritz, and six grandchildren.Mr. Reichardt resumed his education at the University of Southern California, where he earned a bachelor’s degree in economics.After six years at Citizens, Mr. Reichardt went to Union Bank in Los Angeles, where he spent much of his time making loans to real estate developers and commercial builders.
