The new hire will operate out of New York office

Mizuho Americas has hired Bob Wright as its head of execution services sales and trading in the United States. According to a statement released by the company last week, Wright will report to Head of the Equity Division in the Americas Darlene Pasquill.

The addition will help the company bolster its Equity capital markets division.

“The Equity cash trading business is an important component to our corporate and investment banking offering and supports our strategic plan to grow our Equity capital markets business,” CEO of Mizuho Securities USA Jerry Rizzieri.

Wright Comes to Mizuho Americas from BAML

Wright comes to Mizuho Americas from Bank of America Merrill Lynch after 20 years at the firm. Over the years, he’s shifted into increasingly senior positions. He departs from his role as head of US cash trading.

“Bob has the proven ability to successfully orchestrate complex cash equity client trades and he is known for building strong trading teams,” said Pasquill. “Additionally, his prior expertise as the lead trader for IPO’s and secondary risk blocks will be of immediate benefit to our equity platform.”
