For Hire

Barclays has named former Citigroup banker Barry Rodrigues as the head of its Barclaycard International credit card division, the British bank said on Thursday.

Reuters reports that Rodrigues, formerly the head of Citi's digital payments business, will be based in New York in his new role and will start in early November, the bank said.

In the meantime, the news agency also reports that Tom Bolton has left the Northern Europe investment-grade debt capital markets team at BNP Paribas and will soon be appointed group treasurer at Thames Water, according multiple sources.

Bolton resigned from the bank at the end of June and is expected to start Thames Water later this summer.

Finally, UBS on Friday named David Chin as the new head of its Asia Pacific corporate client solutions business, which covers investment banking, according to an internal memo seen by Reuters.

Chin, who joined UBS in 1994 and left in 2015 to pursue academic interest, will take over from Sam Kendall who will be relocating to New York as the head of the bank's global equity capital market business, the memo said.
