City A.M. Reporter
GOLDMAN Sachs has promoted Gregg Lemkau to jointly head its global mergers and acquisitions (M&A) team and Gilberto Pozzi to lead its M&A coverage in Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA).

Lemkau, head of M&A for EMEA and Asia Pacific, will work with Gene Sykes who has been sole head of the division since Yoel Zaoui’s departure last year, a spokeswoman said.

Pozzi, who has been co-head of Goldman’s global consumer retail group since 2010, will retain responsibility for many of his clients in the sector and take on a broader role across countries and industries in the EMEA region.

Lemkau, who became partner in 2002, previously held positions as global co-head of the technology, media and telecom group and served as chief operating officer for the investment banking division.

Pozzi, who made partner in 2008, will be replaced by FX de Mallmann who will be co-head of the consumer retail group with Kathy Elsesser. He will also continue as head of investment banking services in EMEA.
