Additionally, Jim Cowles has been named CEO of the bank’s operating division for Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA), and Brian Leach has been tapped to head the franchise risk and strategy department.

Corbat succeeded Vikram Pandit, who abruptly stepped down as Citigroup CEO in October after he clashed with the board over the bank’s management. Former President John Havens resigned along with Pandit.

Last month, Citigroup announced that it would trim its payroll, eliminating 11,000 jobs in a bid to reduce costs.
