Nearly a year ago, Japanese parent firm, Mizuho Financial Group launched Mizuho Americas, which has since grown as a North American banking holding entity. The group comprises a host of legal entities, aggregating segments in the corporate and investment banking, financing, securities, treasury services, asset management, and research services spaces for clients in North America.
Since then, Mizuho Americas has been aggressively hiring personnel for its Americas operations – since tapping Hiroshi Suehiro as its Americas Head and CEO, Mizuho Americas has brought in a plethora of senior staff. More recently, last month saw the additions of Managing Directors James Lee and Tom McCrohan in the group’s equities research division.
