Mizuho Bank Americas has announced the appointment of Andrew Dewing as Managing Executive Officer and Head of North American Banking. In his new role, Dewing will lead an integrated team of coverage, advisory and product bankers to deliver Mizuho’s expanding product suite to North American clients.
Areas reporting to Dewing include corporate coverage, sponsor coverage, loan capital markets, advisory and solutions, private placements, securitization and leasing.
“Integrating areas of the bank that touch our US and Canadian clients under Andrew’s leadership furthers our goal to be a top-tier corporate and investment bank in North America,” said Hiroshi Suehiro, Senior Managing Executive Officer and Head of the Americas.
With more than thirty years of corporate and investment banking experience, Dewing most recently served as Head of US Corporate Finance for Mizuho, where he oversaw a significant expansion of the bank’s US footprint, including the 2015 acquisition of RBS assets and personnel in April 2015. Previously, he spent six years as the Head of Mizuho’s European Corporate Finance business, successfully growing the firm’s presence across the region. Dewing joined Mizuho from Bank of America, where he spent over twenty years in corporate and investment banking.
“Our success with corporate clients over the past several years has been driven by an expanding client base, an improving product suite and a solutions-oriented mindset,” said Dewing. “We are creating the foundation for our next stage of growth which will include a broader, more integrated banking platform. The expansion of our Advisory & Solutions practice, which will initially focus on several core industries, will further add to the value Mizuho is delivering to our clients.”
