Four new senior leaders have been appointed to Bank of America Merrill Lynch’s EMEA Global Transaction Services (GTS) team.
Peter Jameson has been announced as head of Trade for the department, working with treasury sales, bankers and product teams to create working capital solutions for multinationals and financial institutions. Matthew Davies, who will work alongside him, has been named as co-head of Product Management, overseeing the development of new corporate offerings for payments, receivables, channels, information services and commercial card solutions.
Also joining the team are Geoff Mizen, head of Strategic Solution Delivery and Suzanne Janse van Rensburg, head of Liquidity, who has also been promoted to managing director.
“Peter, Matthew, Geoff and Suzanne have demonstrated impressive leadership as members of my senior leadership team. Peter’s wealth of knowledge of the business and extensive relationships with key stakeholders and trade partners ideally place him for success in his expanded position,” said Jennifer Boussuge, head of GTS EMEA.
“Similarly, Matthew’s prior roles as head of Strategic Solution Delivery and Strategic Relationships for GTS EMEA, combined with his sales leadership roles, position him well to help develop and deploy the full suite of product solutions to our corporate clients. Geoff also brings a depth of experience to his new role. He has worked in diverse positions across BofAML for over 25 years which ideally place him for helping to develop end-to-end client solutions.”
“Suzanne’s promotion reflects the growing significance of liquidity and the impact of LCR on our clients and the bank, as well as her strong leadership and expertise in this area since joining the firm in 2011.”
