Urwin takes top Asia-Pacific role at JP Morgan
JP Morgan has named Jeff Urwin as chief executive of Asia-Pacific, succeeding Gaby Abdelnour, the current head of Asia-Pacific, who announced in March that he would be leaving the bank this summer after 14 years with the firm.
Urwin, head of global investment banking coverage, capital markets and mergers & acquisitions, will take on the additional Asia-Pacific role, based in Hong Kong.
He will be responsible for overseeing all of JP Morgan’s strategic activities in the region, along with his current global banking responsibilities. He will relocate from New York and continue to report to Jes Staley, chief executive of the investment bank.
