Italy’s Banca Leonardo has strengthened its team in Padua (Northern Italy) with the appointments of Luca Babetto and Raffaele Ferraro as relationship managers.
Both hires join Banca Leonardo from Mediobanca private banking, – former Banca Esperia – and in their new roles they will be responsible for the firm’s business development in the area reporting directly to Massimo Sartori.
Ferraro joins Banca Leonardo from Mediobanca private banking where he worked as a senior private banker during the past seven years. Prior to that, he worked at Credit Suisse as a private banker for around two years. He also spent time working at JP Morgan, first as a relationship manager for institutional clients based in London, and later, from the bank’s team in Geneva where he served as a private banker at JP Morgan Eastern Mediterranean team.
Babetto also comes from Mediobanca private banking where he was a director. Before, he worked at Intesa Sanpaolo Group, where since 2002 he has held various positions.
