Noel Kirnon, former head of global structured finance at Moody's Investors Service, has left the rating agency.
While a search for a permanent head is underway, Andy Kimball, who is chief credit officer at Moody's, is replacing Kirnon in the interim.
Rich Cantor will assume responsibility for Kimballs roles as Moodys chief credit officer and chairman of its credit policy committee.
Besides these two roles, Kimball has also held various senior positions at Moodys, including senior managing director for global corporate finance, and managing director for Moodys risk and management services.
Cantor most recently served as managing director of the credit policy research group, and is a member of Moodys credit policy committed and co-chairs Moodys academic advisory panel. Cantor joined Moodys from the Federal Reserve Bank of New York.
