At Credit Suisse, Irwin will head the transportation and autos group together with Andrew Horrocks and report to Andy Lipsky and Mark Echlin, the co-heads of Credit Suisse's global industrials group, according to the memo, a copy of which was reviewed by Reuters.
A Credit Suisse spokesman confirmed the contents of the memo.

Irwin will be based in New York and is expected to start his new role in September, the memo said.
