Moody’s Investors Service Appoints Kimball Head of Structured Finance, Cantor as Chief Credit Officer

Moody’s Investors Service has named Andrew Kimball executive vice president and head of its global structured finance business. He has been acting head of the business since July of this year. Richard Cantor has assumed Kimball’s previous role as chief credit officer of Moody’s Investors Service and chairman of its credit policy committee.

Michel Madelain, chief operating officer of Moody’s Investors Service, reckons the appointments will strengthen the business as the vendor focuses on enhancing the ”transparency and quality” of its ratings.

Kimball joined Moody’s in 1987 as a structured finance analyst and has held various senior positions at Moody’s, including senior managing director for global corporate finance and managing director for Moody’s Risk Management Services.

Cantor has served as managing director of the Credit Policy Research Group, which measures ratings performance globally, publishes related research, and contributes to default research data and analytical tools. He joined Moody’s from the Federal Reserve Bank of New York, where he held a variety of positions in the research group.
