(Adds names of two other top lawyers who left the bank)
NEW YORK Aug 19 Citigroup Inc's general
counsel for its global consumer business, Stephen Simcock, is
leaving the bank "to pursue another opportunity," a spokeswoman
said on Tuesday.
Anita Romero, formerly head of the corporate legal
department, will replace Simcock, spokeswoman Elizabeth Fogarty
said by email. Romero will continue to hold her current post as
general counsel of Citibank N.A., the company's primary
subsidiary, Fogarty said.
Simcock could not be immediately reached for comment.
He is leaving after the departures of at least two other top
lawyers at the bank this year. Jeffrey Small, who was general
counsel of the investment bank, left in June. Small was replaced
by Adam Meshel, who was already with the company.
Earlier in the year, Elizabeth Sacksteder left her post as
deputy general counsel of Citigroup and global head of
litigation and regulatory investigations. Sacksteder became a
partner in the law firm of Paul, Weiss, Rifkind, Wharton &
