BofA’s Veteran U.K. Dealmaker Simon Mackenzie Smith Retires

  • Mackenzie Smith will leave the U.S. bank at end of June
  • Banker’s career in finance spans more than three decades

Bank of America Corp. dealmaker Simon Mackenzie Smith, one of the best-known bankers in London, is retiring after more than 35 years in finance.

Mackenzie Smith, Bank of America’s chairman of corporate and investment banking for U.K. and Ireland, will leave at the end of June after a short transition period, according to an internal memo sent Monday that was obtained by Bloomberg News. He joined Merrill Lynch in 1996, prior to its crisis-era takeover by Bank of America.
