NEW YORK (Reuters) - Wells Fargo & Co said on Wednesday the bank's board of directors had elected former Bank of America Corp executive Charles Noski to join the board.

Noski's appointment, effective on June 1, expands the board to 13 seats. He will serve on its audit and examination committee.

Wells Fargo's board has been shuffled many times since the bank became mired in scandal roughly 2-1/2 years ago. More than half of the company's independent directors joined the board after 2016.

Noski joined Bank of America in 2010 as chief financial officer while the bank was still trying to turn itself around and recover from the financial crisis. He retired in 2012 after helping the bank change its mortgage lending business model.

Noski currently serves on the boards of Microsoft Corp and Booking Holdings Inc and has held director positions at companies including Morgan Stanley, AT&T and Northrop Grumman.

China's Xi says navy should become world class | Reuters

BEIJING Chinese President Xi Jinping on Wednesday called for greater efforts to make the country's navy a world class one, strong in operations on, below and above the surface, as it steps up its ability to project power far from its shores.China's navy has taken an increasingly prominent role in recent months, with a rising star admiral taking command, its first aircraft carrier sailing around self-ruled Taiwan and a new aircraft carrier launched last month.With President Donald Trump promising a US shipbuilding spree and unnerving Beijing with his unpredictable approach on hot button issues including Taiwan and the South and East China Seas, China is pushing to narrow the gap with the U.S. Navy.Inspecting navy headquarters, Xi said the navy should "aim for the top ranks in the world", the Defence Ministry said in a statement about his visit."Building a strong and modern navy is an important mark of a top ranking global military," the ministry paraphrased Xi as saying.
