JPMorgan Chase & Co. is expanding its oil and gas group with two hires from Morgan Stanley. Jonathan Cox is joining the New York bank as global co-head of oil and gas investment banking and co-head of its Houston office, according to an internal memo obtained by Bloomberg and confirmed by a spokeswoman. Michael Johnson is joining as a vice chairman of investment banking.
They’ve each spent almost eight years at Morgan Stanley, where Cox was most recently head of energy mergers and acquisitions
investment banking and Johnson was a senior adviser within that group.
As part of the changes at JPMorgan, Paschall Tosh, will become a vice chairman of investment banking, reporting to Eric Stein, head of investment banking. Tosh was most recently co-head of oil and gas investment banking.
