(Reuters) - Britain's Barclays BARC.L on Thursday appointed Darren Campili as vice chairman of healthcare banking, effective from towards the end of the summer.

Campili will focus on expanding Barclays' relationships with European life sciences clients by providing advice and capital-raising services, the lender said in a statement.

Campili has spent the last twelve years at Deutsche Bank DBKGn.DE, where most recently he was global head of healthcare banking. He has also worked at Novartis NOVN.S.
