Former top M&A banker Calabria leaves Merrill Lynch
LONDON (Reuters) - Carlo Calabria, Bank of America Corp (BAC.N) Merrill Lynch's former top merger banker outside the United States, has left the bank after ceding his role to Adrian Mee over a year ago, a Bank of America spokeswoman said.
Calabria joined Merrill Lynch -- which was bought by Bank of America in a 2008 rescue bid -- in 2005, and he became head of mergers and acquisitions (M&A) in the European, Middle East and Africa and the Asian-Pacific regions.
But Bank of America hired Mee from Nomura (9716.T) for that role late in 2010, and it was not clear what Calabria's plans at Bank of America were ever since.
Calabria would be taking positions on the boards of some companies in Italy, a source familiar with the situation said. Calabria could not be reached for comment.
Before joining Merrill Lynch, Calabria worked for Credit Suisse First Boston (CSGN.VX).
