J.P. Morgan has hired longtime Sciotiabank executive Bryan Mitchener, its former head of U.S. equity sales. Mitchener started earlier this month in New York as an executive director.
The move comes soon after J.P. Morgan brought on Stuart Roberts, its new global head of trade sales who came over from Citi earlier this month. J.P. Morgan has made a number of changes to its sales and trading business in recent months, including naming Elena Korablina the group’s new chief financial officer. Her promotion followed a major shakeup that included marrying the sales and trade team together under Marc Badrichani, who was made head of global sales and research as part of the changes. The ultimate goal is reportedly to free up time for Daniel Pinto, chief executive JPM’s corporate and investment bank, who is said to be focusing more on strategy. Finra records confirm Mitchener has joined J.P. Morgan.
Meanwhile, on the other side of the pond, J.P. Morgan has lost its head of equity sales in EMEA and the head of hedge fund sales in London.
