Longview Partners co-founder James Harasimowicz has rejoined Keefe Bruyette & Woods.

Harasimowicz was named a managing director in the investment bank's depository investment banking group. He is expected to lead KBW's Chicago office following a transitional period in New York.

Harasimowicz began his career at KBW, making stops at Salomon Brothers, Citigroup, Merrill Lynch and Brownfields Capital before co-founding Longview, which specializes in financial services investments.
