An investment banker with a focus on renewable energy projects has left Marathon Capital and joined TD Securities’ power and utilities group in New York.
The banker, John Wisniewski, started at TD in January as a vice president, according to his profile on LinkedIn.
He had worked at Marathon in Chicago for more than four and a half years, specializing in tax and structuring advisory work.
He started his career as an analyst at Citi in Chicago in 2010 and also has experience working for a project developer, Socore Energy.
The group he has joined at TD has been in expansion mode since last year, when the Canadian firm brought in Keith Lord from PJT Partners to lead its U.S. power and utilities business.
At around the same time, Peter Ying joined TD from Goldman Sachs as a managing director (PFR, 9/17). Ying and Lord are both alumni of Lehman Brothers.
TD is not the only one of Canada’s “big five” banks to have made moves to establish a power and utilities presence in New York of late. Last year, BMO Capital Markets, the investment banking arm of Bank of Montreal, recruited a team of three senior bankers who previously worked at rival RBC Capital Markets (PFR, 8/20).
