Nomura Names Kimura Global M&A Head as Novelli Leaves

Nomura Holdings Inc. (8604), Japan’s largest investment bank, named Kenji Kimura global head of M&A as part of changes within the division.

Piero Novelli, who has been co-head of global M&A, is leaving to “pursue other interests,” the firm said in a November memo to staff, which was obtained by Bloomberg News and confirmed by a bank official in London.

Kimura was most recently senior managing director of the CEO-COO office at Nomura Holdings.

Jonathan Rouner was named international head of M&A, a new role based in New York, Nomura said. He will remain head of M&A Americas.
