Maggie Cahill/Wells Fargo

Maggie Cahill is a senior technology program manager with Wells Fargo in San Francisco. She has spent the last 11 years in their Wholesale Bank, building out web and mobile solutions for their largest customers. Prior to Wells Fargo, Maggie worked for Charles Schwab in San Francisco, and Solomon Brothers and Grumman Aircraft in New York. Her degree is in aerospace engineering from Polytechnic Institute of New York, now part of NYU.

Maggie was born in Brooklyn, and raised in New Jersey. Her grandparents, the Cahills, the O’Connors, the Athys, and the Garveys, all immigrated to New York through Ellis Island, hailed from Cork and Claremorris, Co. Mayo. She now lives in San Francisco with her partner of 22 years, Janet Haire.

Maggie is very proud of being second generation Irish-American, and loves celebrating her Irish heritage. To honor her grandmother, Mary Garvey O’Connor, who lived with her family when she was a young girl, she was delighted to be able to obtain dual Irish citizenship and an Irish passport.
