Natixis Appoints Head of North America Corporate and Sponsor Coverage

Natixis announced that William Maier has been appointed Head of Corporate and Sponsor Coverage for North America.

Maier will be responsible for all client coverage for corporations and private equity sponsors in North America and London. His focus will be on developing relationships in key industry sectors for Global Coverage within the Corporate and Investment Banking Division, in a move that is designed to reinforce the U.S. Coverage function.
