People & places BAML unveils seven new hires in corporate banking

Bank of America Merrill Lynch has unveiled a series of seven new hires to its Corporate Banking platform around the world.

In London, Carole Berndt has been appointed Head of EMEA Global Treasury Services, while Wayne Scott joins her as Head of EMEA Financial Institutions Treasury Sales. In New York, Denise Menelly will join the bank in May 2010 as Chief Operating Officer of Global Treasury Sales. Menelly is one of a number of ex-RBS senior staffers who have found alternative roles at more ambitious rivals.

In Hong Kong, Charles Alexander will join in June 2010 as Head of Asia/Pacific Corporate Banking Coverage, reporting to Global Head of Corporate Banking Coverage, Joel Van Dusen and regionally to Asia/Pacific Vice President Brian Brille. Tim Fleming will join the same office one month earlier as Head of Asia/Pacific Corporate Treasure Sales. They will both join Ivo Distelbrink, Head of Asia/Pacific Global Treasury Services, in Hong Kong. Distelbrink moved earlier in the year from BAML’s rival Citi.

“We are expanding our Corporate Banking platform. These significant hires will help drive the business forward and will enhance our ability to meet the dynamic corporate banking needs of our clients around the world,” said Paul Donofrio, head of Global Corporate Banking. “Corporate Banking is a core business for Bank of America in the U.S. and through our acquisition of Merrill Lynch, we gained access to hundreds of investment banking and global markets clients in EMEA and Asia to whom we can now provide a complete range of financial solutions.”
