Masao Yoshikawa has been appointed to head Citigroup's mergers and acquisitions in Japan.
The appointment comes as investment banks look to profit from the record-setting pace of overseas acquisitions by Japanese companies, which have so far this year announced $78 billion worth of outbound deals.
Spending a decade in investment banking at Merrill Lynch and Goldman Sachs before joining Silver Lake, Yoshikawa will fill the role previously held by Takeshi Inoue, who will take on the newly established post of vice chairman of investment banking.
He will report to Yuichi Jimbo, head of investment banking at Citigroup Global Markets Japan, and Colin Banfield, head of M&A for the Asia-Pacific region.
