A round-up of the latest positions for those in finance, covering investment markets worldwide
Citigroup has moved to tighten relationships with its most valuable blue chip clients by charging two of its most senior bankers with the job of monitoring client relationships.
Hans Morris and Panfilo Tarantelli are to jointly head Citigroup's new client management effort.
Morris has been chief operating officer for investment banking and is a former head of the financial services investment banking group. Tarantelli was head of the European investment bank.
Tarantelli will become vice-chairman of SchroderSalomonSmithBarney, while Morris becomes vice-chairman of management and administration for the global investment bank.
Their job will be to knock on the door of chief executives and other senior officers at large corporations to find out what the bank is doing well and where it could improve.
They will liaise with senior product heads in an attempt to sell a wider range of investment and commercial banking products. Morris will continue to be based in New York while Tarantelli will remain in London.
JJ McNeil succeeds Tarantelli as head of European investment banking. McNeil joined Schroders in 1997 and was head of UK corporate finance at the time it was bought by Citigroup.
Andrea Farace replaces Morris as chief operating officer for the investment bank, a step up from his current role as chief operating officer of European investment banking.
