Garry Popofsky has left BNP Paribas in New York where he was head of foreign exchange and emerging markets sales for the Americas.
The bank says Popofsky’s responsibilities have been assumed by George Nunn, who will lead the FX sales-to-investor teams in New York and Montreal, the Latin American corporate derivative and FX sales team and the global local market sales team.
Nunn will continue in his role as managing director and head of the interest rate and FX structuring team in the Americas, a spokesperson says.
Nunn joined BNP Paribas in May 2007 from HSBC Holdings. He previously worked at BNPP in London and New York from 1991 to 2000.
Popofsky joined the French bank in 2004 as head of FX corporate sales in North America from the Royal Bank of Scotland, where he was managing director in FX sales for over five years. The spokesperson did not comment on why Popofsky departed.
