Citi has appointed Swift's Patrick Curtin North American head of investor client sales management.
Curtin is leaving his role as head of strategic planning for Swift within the global banking and securities market infrastructure division, where he was charged with defining "the domain where technology, telecommunications and investment operations intersect".
Before his one year stint at Swift, Curtin spent nearly 13 years as a senior executive and member of the management committee at The Bank of New York Mellon.
In his new role he will be responsible for sales across the entire investor services suite in North America to traditional and alternative investors and investment managers. He reports to Richard Ernesti, global head of investor client sales management and Julie Monaco, North America region head of global transaction services.
Commenting on the appointment, Neeraj Sahai, global head, securities and fund services, Citi, says: "His extensive industry expertise and sales experience will be instrumental in leading a discussion with Investors and Managers about how we can support their need for increased risk mitigation and reduced infrastructure costs."
