Nomuras’ chief of investment banking in the Americas is leaving the firm, Bloomberg reports.Glenn Schiffman has been in charge of the American unit for one year, and joined Nomura as part of the Lehman Brothers acquisition. The firm won’t comment on why he’s leaving, FINS reported.
He’d worked with Lehman for 17 years. He was head of the firm’s Asia-Pacific investment bank when it collapsed in 2008.
James DeNaut will replace Schiffman, “effective immediately.”
DeNaut is a former Deutsche Banker. He joined Nomura last year, and prior to that specialised in advising energy companies.
