Credit Suisse Banker Exits Over Unauthorized Message App Use

Credit Suisse Group AG’s former global head of equity capital markets syndicate was removed from his position after being found to have used unauthorized messaging services when communicating with clients, according to a person familiar with the matter. 

Anthony Kontoleon, a managing director, had been at Credit Suisse for nearly 28 years, according to his LinkedIn profile, before his departure was announced in April. He was promoted to head of ECM syndicate for the Americas in 2012 and started leading the global practice in 2015.
