Bank of America Merrill Lynch has hired Jeffrey Hamilton from JPMorgan Chase & Co. to head its Canada energy investment banking unit, according to an internal memo.
Hamilton, who will be based in Calgary and takes over his new duties in September, will be charged with developing relationships and increasing market share in the Canadian energy industry, the memo states.
Hamilton has 20 years of banking experience in the U.S. and Asia, including most recently JPMorgan’s Asia Pacific Energy Investment Banking.
Hamilton was drafted by the Buffalo Sabres National Hockey League team in 1982, playing mostly with their affiliate in Rochester.
John Yiannacopoulos, a Bank of America spokesman, confirmed the veracity of the memo. The Wall Street Journal reported the hire earlier.
