Citigroup Inc (NYSE: C ). has made a strategic move to consolidate its foreign-exchange sales teams for corporate and institutional clients, placing them under the leadership of Sam Hewson, effective Tuesday. Hewson, a seasoned executive known for his work in corporate sales across Europe, the Middle East, and Africa, will now manage the combined teams.
This decision follows a series of leadership changes in Citigroup's currency-trading division. Flavio Figueiredo recently assumed the role of head of the division on an interim basis, following a brief tenure by Leo Arduini. Arduini's stint came after the departure of Stu Staley.
The unification of the foreign-exchange sales teams under Hewson's leadership is seen as a strategic move to streamline operations and leverage Hewson's extensive experience in corporate sales across diverse regions.
