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.

KBW CEO Thomas Michaud said that Harasimowicz's hire helps "solidify the KBW team as one of the broadest, most experienced and most creative investment banking teams in this important sector."
