Fitch Ratings announced today that Debbie Hartley will lead its global investor development team that is based in London.
In a press release, the rating agency said that it consolidated its investor-focused business staff in its Fitch Ratings unit into a global team under Hartley. The team will also work closely with Fitch Solutions, which distributes Fitch Ratings content and also provides a range of credit products and services to the market.
Hartley reports to Peter Jordan, head of global business relationship management for Fitch.
"Investors are increasingly interested in multiple sectors and geographies and, under Hartley's leadership, we have a great opportunity to unify and strengthen our approach to reflect this shift," Jordan said in the release.
Hartley was previously head of global investor marketing at Bank of America Merrill Lynch, and prior to that, was an investor relations director at Citigroup Alternative Investments.
Earlier in her career, she was a credit analyst with JPMorgan and an equity analyst with Morgan Stanley.
