One of the most high-profile dealmakers on Wall Street, Lemkau had jointly led Goldman's mergers and acquisition department for a number of years, before being tasked to serve as co-head of investment banking in 2017.

Under Lemkau, the bank dominated mergers and acquisitions among the top 20 financial advisers for 2019, according to data and analytics company GlobalData. (https://bit.ly/3f8bAp8)

Goldman's investment banking division has benefited from a number of large mergers and several high-profile IPOs in the third quarter this year, as dealmaking roared back to life following a pandemic-induced slowdown earlier this year.

Esposito, who currently serves as the co-head of the company's global markets division, will take over Lemkau's role from January.
