Bank of Montreal has named three deputy heads of investment banking to newly created positions under a revised structure to centralize industry coverage in its capital markets division, according to an organizational chart seen by Reuters.
The news agency reports that the moves come about five months after BMO appointed Dan Barclay and Peter Myers as co-heads of global investment and corporate banking. The three executives - John Armstrong, Ashi Mathur and Michael Neuberger - will report to Barclay and Myers.
In the meantime, Bloomberg News reports that Greenhill & Co promoted Pieter-Jan Bouten to head its U.K. investment bank, replacing Anthony Parsons, who left to join HSBC earlier this month.
Bouten had been a managing director at Greenhill covering European clients with a focus on telecommunications, media and technology, according to the website of the U.S.-based bank. He joined Greenhill in 2001 and will continue to work in London. The promotion was confirmed by an official for the bank.
Finally, Reuters also reports that JPMorgan Chase & Co CEO Jamie Dimon on Thursday added Peter Scher, global head of corporate responsibility, to the bank’s 10-member operating committee of top executives.
In an employee memo, which was seen by Reuters, Dimon said he named Scher to the panel to ensure a “coordinated approach to our broad-based community engagement, government relations and overall public policy efforts.”
