UBS’s head of energy investment banking for Europe, the Middle East and Africa, Michael Hafner, has left the bank, according to a person familiar with the matter.

Bloomberg News reports that Hafner, who joined UBS in 2014 from Deutsche Bank, left the bank at the end of August and no replacement has been named for him, the person said, asking not to be identified as the information is private. A representative for UBS declined to comment.

In the meantime, the Charlotte Observer reports that Wells Fargo said Tuesday it has promoted two Charlotte-based executives in its investment banking business.

Sam Farnham, who most recently headed middle market investment banking, will now be over mergers and acquisitions for the Americas. Kristin Lesher has been named to Farnham’s former role, after serving as head of middle market investment banking for the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic.
