Goldman, BBVA, Regions: The biggest leadership changes of 2018
The past year was one of upheaval on many fronts, and that included leadership shake-ups at major financial institutions.
Some appointments were meant to bring calm to a troubled company. Deutsche Bank and Social Finance hoped to put negative headlines behind them under new leadership. Wells Fargo, however, continued to see executive exits as a result of its phony-accounts scandal.
One bank took openings in its C-suite to set a benchmark for change. At SunTrust Banks in Atlanta, four of the nine members of its executive council are women.
There were surprises, too: A high-profile Bank of America executive, Michelle Moore, announced she would step down to spend more time with her family.
A number of lenders, including Goldman Sachs, enacted succession plans, while others reshuffled key positions in a short span.
Following is a look at the industry's biggest leadership changes of 2018.
