Credit Suisse just named one of Wall Street’s youngest female executives as global head of equity sales

Lucy Baldwin, the high-flying executive who just left Bank of America for Credit Suisse, has been named the Swiss bank’s global head of equity sales. She will be based in London.

The news was distributed in a memo to Credit Suisse staff on Wednesday, according to a person familiar with the matter. Baldwin will replace Eric Miller, based in New York, who will remain at the firm until the summer to ensure a smooth transition, the person said, citing the memo.

Credit Suisse and Baldwin declined to comment.

Business Insider reported earlier this month on Baldwin’s departure from Bank of America, which came amid a spate of other departures from the firm.

Baldwin was a managing director in equities at Bank of America since 2015, and before that, she was at Goldman Sachs, where she became one of the firm’s youngest managing directors at 28.

Baldwin, who was on Forbes’ “30 Under 30” list for finance, worked on the equities-management team at Bank of America. She told the University of Birmingham in 2015 that the team involved “coming up with ideas, research content, and then we’re packaging that into actionable ideas that our end client can ultimately trade through us or, of course, through other banks in the City.”

Miller could not be reached for comment.
