Vince will report to CEO Todd Gibbons, according to the news release, and will be on the bank's executive committee.
Gibbons said the purview of Vince's new job will make the bank "better positioned to become the central facilitator in our clients' capital markets ecosystems — across markets, asset classes and geographies."
