Barclays exec to depart

Adam Jeffery | CNBC

A senior investment banker at Barclays is set to leave following a combined 17 years at the bank and the one it acquired, Lehman Brothers.

Larry Wieseneck, now head of global distribution and structuring at Barclays, will depart in June to "pursue other interests," according to an internal memo sent to employees today that was obtained by CNBC.com.

Wieseneck's replacement was unclear. A spokesman for Barclays declined to comment. Wieseneck did not immediately respond to requests.

Wieseneck was co-head of global finance at Lehman Brothers before it was acquired by Barclays during the 2008 financial crisis.
