Bill Borden has been named managing director and head of North America Product Solutions and Dennis Sweeney has been named managing director and a Treasury Solutions Executive. They will both join in September and be based in New York.
'Bill is a dynamic leader with more than 28 years of experience in financial services, sales and consulting. His deep knowledge of the U.S. transaction banking market and track record of successfully developing and implementing growth strategies will be key to deepening the product solutions we offer our clients', said Paul Simpson, head of Global Transaction Services for Bank of America Merrill Lynch.
'After nearly 30 years as a client of treasury sales groups and corporate banking relationship managers like ours, Dennis possesses intimate knowledge of the role that information plays within a treasury group and within a bank', commented Simpson.
As head of North America Product Solutions, Borden will manage the North America Product Sales teams that cut across Global Corporate Banking, Global Commercial Banking and Business Banking. He was most recently with Citigroup, where he was responsible for leading the team focused on developing Cash Management and Securities Fund Services relationships with U.S. state and local governments.
As a Treasury Solutions Executive, Sweeney will work closely with various teams and global product leaders to provide senior finance executives at Bank of America Merrill Lynch’s largest global clients with advice, expertise, best practices and trends related to their treasury platforms. He was previously with General Electric for 20 years, most recently as Deputy Treasurer, where he created a Treasury consulting group that integrated acquisitions, conducted Treasury reviews of existing business operations, identified best practices and implemented new technology. While with GE, Sweeney launched the first web-enabled Treasury workstation in the industry and led the drive to open the SWIFT network to corporate Treasury users.
