MOVES-JPMorgan fills senior leadership roles after February makeover

LONDON, May 18 (Reuters) – JPMorgan has appointed Camillo Greco as co-head of investment banking industries coverage in Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA) as part of a number of changes in senior positions at the bank.

Greco will work alongside the other co-head of investment banking industries coverage Guillermo Baygual and will report to EMEA investment banking co-heads Dorothee Blessing and Conor Hillery, according to an internal memo seen by Reuters.

Baygual, meanwhile, will expand his responsibilities to become co-head of mergers and acquisitions (M&A) along with Dwayne Lysaght. Greco was head of consumer investment banking before his promotion.

The Wall Street bank has also named new leaders for its capital market and merger and acquisition (M&A)units, filling a series of top roles left vacant after a major leadership reshuffle in February.

These changes are intended to support a newly-launched committee of 18 global chairmen who are focusing purely on bringing in business and developing client relationships, according to a source with knowledge of the matter.

Aloke Gupte and Alex Watkins will become co-heads of equity capital markets in EMEA and Keith Canton will become global head of private placements.

Ben Thompson has been named head of leveraged finance capital markets for EMEA, while Marco Caggiano and Chris Roop will become co-heads of North America M&A.

Finally, Jared Kaye and John Purcell will become co-heads of investment banking coverage for the financial institutions group (FIG) sector in North America. (Reporting by Abhinav Ramnarayan; Editing by Emelia Sithole-Matarise)
