Bridge Bank’s Global Markets Group has announced the hiring of James Barron as senior foreign exchange sales advisor. Based in Boston, he will focus on expanding the east coast presence of the group.
In his new role, the bank says Barron will work closely with relationship managers and other internal partners to identify FX opportunities and advise the bank’s clients on managing and hedging their FX exposures.
“As we continue to expand our team, we seek out highly knowledgeable bankers who deliver the level of service and expertise Bridge Bank is known for,” says Brian Simonson, senior director in Bridge Bank’s Global Markets Group. “James brings a depth of experience that will benefit our global markets clients on the east coast and beyond.”
Barron was last in the FX industry in 2019 when he left State Street, where he worked for over three years as head of sales Americas, for Global Link fintech services. Prior to that he spent five years at The Huntington National Bank, and over six years at the Royal Bank of Scotland/Citizens Bank – both in senior global markets roles. He started his FX career in 1995 at the Bank of Boston.
“We have a very talented and experienced team of individuals with expertise in technology and innovation, professional services, manufacturing and logistics, life sciences and commercial real estate,” says Barron. “Our philosophy is to listen, understand and work with clients to deliver responsive and strategic global solutions.”
