MOVES-Citi's Winter springs to BNP Paribas

From Reuters - January 11, 2018

LONDON, Jan 11 (IFR) - Investment banker Eirik Winter has left Citigroup after over 20 years to take up a senior position at BNP Paribas as chief executive officer for the French bank in the Nordic region and head of corporate and institutional banking Nordics.

At Citigroup Winter was head of debt capital markets and syndicate for EMEA in London until March 2010, when he became head of investment banking for the Nordics, also based in London.

BNP Paribas has several hundred people in the region and a range of businesses, so this is a management and strategic exercise for me but I will remain deal-focused, Winter told IFR.

Winter is Swedish but was born in Finland. He originally joined what was Salomon Brothers in 1996, prior to its incorporation into Citi.

Earlier this week Citigroup said that Lars Ingemarsson and Ari Makela had been appointed co-heads of investment banking for the Nordic region. Both joined the bank in 2011. Ingemarsson is based in Stockholm and Makela in Helsinki. They cover Swedish and Finnish markets, respectively.

Winter will start his role at BNP Paribas on April 3, reporting to Yannick Jung, who on December 1 was promoted to head of global banking EMEA.
