The head of Wells Fargo's (WFC) personal and small-business insurance division died on Wednesday during a business trip to Minnesota.

Anne Doss died in a Sofitel hotel in Bloomington, a city south of Minneapolis, according to The Charlotte Observer. She was 56. Preliminary findings indicate that she died from natural causes, according to an investigator at the Hennepin County Medical Examiner's Office.

Doss was promoted to her position at Wells Fargo in December. She led a team that provides small-business and consumer insurance products. Previously she led the national practices and special risk group in insurance for the $1.4 trillion-asset company. She had also worked for Wachovia, which Wells Fargo bought in 2008, as president of insurance services.

Doss is survived by her husband, Herbert Doss, and her adult son and daughter. The family lives in Charlotte, N.C.
