ABN AMRO announced on Tuesday that it strengthened its sector origination capabilities for energy, commodities and transportation clients to further build its dedicated advisory services for ECT cross border and event driven corporate activity.
The bank recruited Jeroen Westrik as its head of ECT sector origination. Westrik previously served as the head of energy and resources for RBS' corporate advisory team in London.
Westrik originally started his career at ABN AMRO in 1998, working on the structured finance, technology, media and telecommunications finance, and leveraged finance teams. He moved to Houston in 2006 as ABN AMRO's head of North America capital structuring for energy and resources, before joining RBS in 2008.
"Sector origination will expand our focus on driving ECT's important cross border client agenda and the identification of event driven transactions, in conjunction with our corporate finance & capital markets and debt solutions colleagues," Maarten Terlouw, the global head of ECT at ABN AMRO, said.
Gregory Vandeler was also appointed as an ECT sector originator. He previously served as a vice president of corporate advisory in the industrials group at RBS in London.
"We believe we can add significant value for ECT clients, by further strengthening our dedicated advisory services for these sectors alongside our traditional strength in lending," Terlouw said.
