JPMorgan Chase on Wednesday named Jeff Urwin and Kevin Willsey new co-heads of investment banking for the United States and Canada, according to an internal memo obtained by IDD.
Urwin and Willsey will report to Jes Staley, CEO of JPMorgan's investment bank. They succeed Doug Braunstein, who is now the firm’s chief financial officer. Nicolas Aguzin will continue to run investment banking for Latin America.
Urwin joined the bank with the acquisition of Bear Stearns in 2008. He was co-head of global investment banking at Bear, which he joined in 1996. He previously worked at Lehman Brothers and Samuel Montagu.
Willsey had been the firm’s head of equity capital and derivative markets. He joined the bank in 1989, but spent two years at Goldman Sachs before returning to the firm.
