Barclays bank staff revamp gathers pace

FORMER Citigroup banker Tom King&nbsp; &ndash; due to join Barclays Capital next month &ndash; is set to become head of investment banking for Europe, the MiddleEast, and Africa.<br /><br />In the latest move in Barclays&rsquo; recent management shake-up, King will report to Barclays Capital&rsquo;s head of global investment banking, Hugh &ldquo;Skip&rdquo; McGee.<br /><br />The role is currently held by John Winter, who will become chief executive of Barclays corporate bank.<br /><br />King, who was originally hired to be head of global corporate finance, will also share that role with Ros Stephenson.<br /><br />The move follows a management re-organisation announced earlier in the week, which led to the departure of Frits Seegers as chief executive of global retail and commercial banking, and expanded the role of Barclays president Bob Diamond.&nbsp; Diamond will head a new corporate and investment banking group, adding commercial banking to the Barclays Capital and Barclays Wealth units he already heads.<br /><br />The revamp also means Antony Jenkins will become head of global retail banking, with Deanna Oppenheimer as vice chairman. Valerie Soranno Keating replaces Jenkins as chief executive of Barclaycard.
