Mitsubishi UFJ Financial Group promoted Jon Lindenberg to head of Investment Banking for the Americas. Concurrently, Shinichi Sato was named deputy head of Investment Banking and Erik Codrington was appointed head of Structured Finance.

Lindenberg, who previously served as the deputy head of Investment Banking and head of Structured Finance, will report to Kevin Cronin, MUFG’s head of U.S. Wholesale and Investment Banking for the Americas. Lindenberg succeeded Fumitaka “Hama” Nakahama, who will return to Tokyo as head of the Global Corporate and Investment Banking Planning division.

Lindenberg joined MUFG in 2009 after spending 18 years with Citigroup.

“This is a well-deserved promotion for Jon,” Cronin said. “With more than 30 years of experience and a strong record of accomplishment, I am confident he can successfully lead our investment bank on the next phase of its journey.”

Sato, currently deputy general manager of MUFG’s Investment Banking Credit Division in Europe, the Middle East and Africa, will relocate from London to New York to assume his new role. He has worked in a number of corporate and investment banking areas and in several securities businesses, including securitization, aviation and debt research over the course of his 24-year career at MUFG.

Codrington has more than 25 years of experience in financing large-scale energy and infrastructure projects throughout the Americas, including advisory, debt capital markets and syndicated loans. Codrington joined MUFG in 2011 after working at Citigroup and JPMorgan. He also served four years as an officer in the U.S. Navy.
