Jennifer Mihocko-Tierney, Bank of America's head of electronic foreign-exchange sales for the Americas, has left the company, according to two people with knowledge of the matter who requested anonymity to discuss personnel matters.

Bloomberg News reports that Mihocko-Tierney worked for the bank for more than five years in New York after joining from Barclays, according to her profile on the LinkedIn website.

In the meantime, Reuters reports that HSBC has appointed Scott Couzner as head of M&A in Australia from UBS, where he was most recently running the Southeast Asian M&A team, the bank said in a statement on Friday.

Couzner's appointment comes at a time when the bank is restructuring its massive operations to increase profits. HSBC is slashing close to 50,000 jobs - half of which will come from selling businesses in Brazil and Turkey, shutting down unprofitable units and shrinking the investment bank by a third.
