Maverick’s Lyons To Plot BofA’s Future

Sep 15 2010 | 2:47am ET

Maverick Capital’s Mike Lyons has joined Bank of America as the firm mulls which of its businesses it should sell off.

Lyons handled financial-services investments at New York-based Maverick, including an investment in BofA that the hedge fund sold during the second quarter. He previously worked at Morgan Stanley, Merrill Lynch and FleetBoston Financial.

At BofA, Lyons will serve as a corporate strategy and planning executive. He took up his new post, answering to CFO Charles Noski, in May, but the firm did not announce his arrival until now because Lyons does not report directly to the firm’s CEO, Brian Moynihan.
