Chairman & CEO- Bank of America
Brian Thomas Moynihan (born October 9, 1959) is an American lawyer,
businessman and the chairman and CEO of Bank of America. He joined the
board of directors, following his promotion to president and CEO
Early Life & Education
Moynihan was born in Marietta, Ohio in 1959, the sixth of eight children in a
Roman Catholic family of Irish descent. Moynihan graduated from Brown
University in 1981, where he majored in history, co-captained the rugby team, and met his future wife,
classmate Susan E. Berry. He earned a Juris Doctor from the University of Notre Dame Law School, before
returning to Providence, Rhode Island to join Edwards & Angell LLP, the city’s largest corporate law firm.
Moynihan held numerous banking positions before becoming president of consumer and small business banking
at Bank of America in January 2009.
He joined Fleet Boston in April 1993 as a deputy general counsel. From 1999 to April 2004, he served as
executive vice president, managing Fleet's brokerage and wealth management division. After Bank of
America (BoA) merged with FleetBoston Financial in 2004, he joined BoA as president of global wealth and
investment management. He was named CEO of Merrill Lynch after its sale to BoA in September 2008, and
became the CEO of Bank of America after Ken Lewis stepped down in 2010.
On August 25, 2011, CNBC's Drew Sandholm noted that "[d]espite having recently told investors Bank of
America ... doesn't need to raise capital, CEO Brian Moynihan will accept $5 billion in capital from famed
investor Warren Buffett. The deal not only surprised theFast Money traders on Thursday, it also caused them to
question Moynihan's credibility."
On September 12, 2011, CNBC's John Carney noted that Moynihan had "once again laid out his company's plan
to meet regulatory capital requirements and denied that the bank will have to issue new stock to raise capital ...
[Moynihan] says that Warren Buffett's $5 billion counts as Tier 1 Capital. But the markets have largely ignored
the investment, most likely because it looks a lot more like debt than capital."
On October 26, 2011, Huffington Post blogger Jillian Berman noted that BoA "has also been hammered in the
stock and bonds markets" and "was the worst performer in the Dow Jones Industrial Average for two-quarters
straight ... while Moody's downgraded the bank last month." She added while JPMorgan Chase's CEO received
a $19 million raise in 2010, Moynihan's salary stayed level at $950,000.
On December 27, 2011, Julia LaRoche wrote in Business Insider that Moynihan "admitted the proposed $5
monthly fee for debit card users wasn't the best idea". She quoted him as saying: "We struck a chord with
customers that no one anticipated. We learned our lesson and stopped it." It was later reported that the failed fee
plan led to a 20% increase in account closures during the last three months of 2011. In late January 2012,
"What we need to do is to continue to fine-tune the company, give capital ratios where people understood that
we had the capital we knew we had. And then they saw that and that’s why you saw some response in the
stock....The core issue now is to drive the core earnings, and we’ve got to get the costs down in the company,
which we’re working on. And then as the economy continues to move along, even at the 2 percent growth level,
we'll start to materialize more and more earnings, and that's what we need to do."
