Capital One Appoints Centerview’s Crawford as Next Finance Chief
Feb. 1 (Bloomberg) -- Capital One Financial Corp., the lender that gets more than half its revenue from credit cards, named Centerview Partners LLP co-founder Stephen S. Crawford to succeed Gary L. Perlin as chief financial officer.
Crawford, 48, joins the firm next week and will become its finance chief in May when Perlin, 61, retires, the McLean, Virginia-based company said today in a statement. Crawford also will be a memeber of the executive committee, reporting to Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Richard D. Fairbank.
Crawford advised Capital One on strategic and financial decisions while at Centerview, the New York-based investment banking boutique founded in 2006, according to the statement. He previously worked at Morgan Stanley (MS) in roles including CFO.
“Gary has been a trusted and valued partner over the past decade,” Fairbank said in the statement. “His counsel and leadership were instrumental as we successfully weathered an unprecedented financial crisis and emerged in an even stronger position to grow our company and create shareholder value.”
