The shake-up in the top ranks of Morgan Stanley’s investment banking technology team continues.
James McGill, a managing director and Asia chief information officer in Hong Kong, has just left the bank. He is currently an independent ‘engineering technologist’, according to his public profile.
McGill’s departure should not come as a surprise. Earlier this year, Simon Holden, a senior technologist in Morgan Stanley’s London operation, moved to Hong Kong to take the role of Asia CIO.
However, McGill’s departure comes after a 16-year tenure at Morgan Stanley and is another exit from a senior role in its technology division. McGill joined Morgan Stanley in 2001 from Priceline Webhouse, where he was also CIO. This was a return to the U.S. bank – he spent over four years at Morgan Stanley before this move to Priceline.
In June, Steve Lieblich, Morgan Stanley’s chief information officer for its investment bank, left to head up technology for the hedge fund division of Citadel. Moira Kilkoyne, who was co-CIO at Morgan Stanley, retired in March and is now running her own technology consultancy, MAK Management Consultancy.
