Reuters reports that Gallo joins BNP from Deutsche Bank, where he ran the institutional client group. Prior to that, he served as head of investor sales for global markets in North America at Citigroup. He will be based in New York.
In the meantime, Credit Suisse has appointed Craig Edgar as vice chairman of the bank’s power and renewables group in the Americas, according to an internal memo seen by Reuters, the contents of which were verified by a spokesman for the bank.
Edgar will join in late-January from UBS.
Finally, Reuters also reports that Robert Danziger, the head of investment-grade loan capital markets for the Americas at Deutsche Bank, has left the firm, according to sources.
