Today's City Moves cover banking, law and the creative sector. Take a look at these movers and shakers:


Barclays has announced that the group chief compliance officer, Michael Roemer, will leave the business to take up a role leading the compliance function for a major US Bank. Michael will step down from the group executive committee and leave Barclays at the end of this month. He joined Barclays from CIT Group in 2012 where he was the chief auditor, reporting directly to the board audit committee and having global responsibility for CIT Group’s internal audit function. He has 27 years’ experience in financial services, with 23 years of that time spent at JP Morgan Chase and its’ predecessor organisations.

PB Creative

Brand design agency PB Creative announces the appointment of Lloyd Moffat as creative director and Anna Amos as client services director, further strengthening the agency’s creative delivery and service to clients, and building on its reputation as a world-class studio. Lloyd has many years’ experience working for top design agencies, including JKR, where he worked his way up to senior designer, and has a proven track record of delivering first-rate creative for some of the world’s best-known consumer brands.

Having started at PB in 2015 as design director, Lloyd has now scaled the ranks and been promoted to creative director. He says, “My new role will be to inspire the studio and champion the best creative output from the team. I always strive for perfection and believe that innovative, creative work helps our clients stay ahead of the competition.” Anna joins PB Creative with more than 17 years’ experience across multiple categories in client services, including design, packaging and FMCG.

Allen & Overy

Allen & Overy has announced the appointment of Scott Robson as its first global head of e-discovery. Scott, who will be based in A&O’s Spitalfields office, joins from EY where he was an executive director in the forensic technology and discovery services (FTDS) group within the fraud investigation and dispute Services (FIDS) practice. Over the last year, A&O has grown the size of its e-discovery team by almost 50 per cent. The firm has hired a senior employee in Asia Pacific to complement the capabilities already established globally, and continues to grow the teams in the US, UK and European offices. Scott’s appointment highlights A&O’s commitment to investing in the firm’s Advanced Delivery capability, which seeks to find bold technology and resourcing solutions to solve clients’ challenges. Scott said: “This is an exciting time to join Allen & Overy as it is currently investing in a new eDiscovery platform”.
