For Hire

Barclays has appointed John Miller to the newly created role of head of banking for the Americas and named Paul Parker to oversee mergers and acquisitions globally.

Bloomberg News reports that the bank also said that Ros Stephenson will become chairman of banking worldwide, according to a memo Wednesday to employees from Tom King and Eric Bommensath, the co-chief executive officers of the corporate and investment bank.

In the meantime, Reuters reports that Barclays' group treasurer is leaving the bank, marking the departure of another of the senior investment bankers who moved up through the ranks under former boss Bob Diamond.

Benoit de Vitry has been at Barclays for 13 years and been treasurer since late 2011. Chief Executive Antony Jenkins told staff in a memo this week de Vitry had decided to spend more time with his family, and will leave in December.

And Bloomberg also reports that Citigroup has hired Pierpaolo di Stefano and Leopoldo Attolico to run investment banking in Italy as the euro-region’s third-largest economy emerges from recession.

Attolico, 50, joins from Deutsche Bank, where he was vice chairman of investment banking for Italy, while Di Stefano was hired from Nomura, where he oversaw Italian investment banking. Both report to Luigi de Vecchi, chairman of corporate and investment banking for continental Europe, and to Renzo Arcoria, Italy country officer.

Bloomberg also reports that Deutsche Bank has hired Karl Keirstead as an equity analyst heading research of the U.S. software industry.

Keirstead, who will start as a director in December, previously covered software at BMO Capital Markets, Frankfurt-based Deutsche Bank said today in an e-mailed statement. He’ll be based in New York and report to Steve Pollard, head of research for the Americas.

Finally, Bloomberg reports that Guy Wylie, the former head of primary markets for Asia Pacific at Royal Bank of Scotland, has joined Telstra as corporate treasurer, according to Scott Whiffin, a Melbourne-based spokesman for Australia’s biggest phone company.

Wylie left the bank due to personal reasons, according to an e-mailed response he sent to Bloomberg News in August.
