JPMorgan Names Global M&A Co-Heads

Jpmorgan Offices Still

JPMorgan has named Chris Ventresca and Hernan Cristerna as co-heads of global mergers and acquisitions.

Ventresca, 46, previously was JPMorgan’s head of North American M&A, while Cristerna, 48, oversaw M&A for Europe, Middle East and Africa, according to a memo obtained by Bloomberg News.

They will report to Jeff Urwin, global head of investment banking.

JPMorgan, led by CEO Jamie Dimon, is overhauling top management on its M&A team. Ventresca and Cristerna will have global responsibilities, with each overseeing their former regions, Pelio said. They will share responsibility for deals in Asia.

Combining global M&A under two leaders streamlines the bank’s decision-making, Ventresca said in a phone interview.

'We can move more quickly with common leadership', Ventresca said. 'When an opportunity arises, we can put the right advisory resources in place'.
