Jennifer Boussuge has been named head of Global Transaction Services (GTS) for Europe, Middle-East and Africa (EMEA) at Bank of America Merrill Lynch (BAML), replacing the departed Carole Berndt who has left to take up a global role at RBS.
Boussuge has been with BAML for more than 19 years, during which time she has held a number of leadership roles, most recently as head of global sales for GTS. She will retain this job simultaneous to her new position until a successor can be found.
Her prior positions at the bank have included head of international subsidiary banking sales, GTS, EMEA, where she lead the delivery of global treasury and liquidity management services to large corporate healthcare and consumer and retail clients throughout the US. Boussuge has also been a senior treasury sales officer for international government clients and client manager for international corporates during her 19 years at BAML.
Commenting on the appointment, Paul Simpson, head of GTS, said: “Jennifer has been based in London since 2010, during which time she’s developed a keen understanding of the EMEA region, which she successfully combines with an ability to leverage the global platform to advance client relationships and win mandates. I wish her much continued success in her new role.”
As head of GTS EMEA, Boussuge will continue to report directly to Simpson and remains a member of the GTS global leadership team. With immediate effect, she is also joining the Europe and Emerging Markets (ex-Asia) regional executive committee led by Alex Wilmot-Sitwell, president of the collective.
