Sharma named head of BRM for public finance and infrastructure group

Fitch Ratings named Anjali Sharma its global head of business and relationship management (BRM) for public finance and infrastructure, the company announced Wednesday. She replaces Managing Director Ann Flynn who retired this summer after 15 years at the company.

Sharma has been a managing director and head of Europe, Middle East, and Africa (EMEA) corporates and BRM at Fitch in London. She joined the firm in 2013. She is also an inaugural member of Fitch’s Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Council.

Fitch Ratings named Anjali Sharma its global head of business and relationship management for public finance and infrastructure.

She previously worked as a director of loan syndications at National Australia Bank in London, a leveraged finance associate at Toronto-Dominion Bank (TD Bank) and a credit analyst at Credit Lyonnais Securities.

“I am excited to lead the team through what will be an exciting period of growth in public finance, especially in global infrastructure financing,” Sharma said.

Sharma will report to Mark Oline, global head of BRM, and will be based in London. She will be responsible for leading and developing the growth in the global public finance, infrastructure and project finance sectors.

“Anjali’s disciplined approach to growing our franchise in EMEA corporates will be invaluable in strengthening Fitch’s global presence in public finance and infrastructure,” Oline said.

Flynn, who started at Fitch in 2008, retired in July after heading up the BRM team for public finance and infrastructure.

Before Fitch, Flynn was a managing director at RBC Capital Markets and held vice president positions at Commerce Capital Markets and at Ryan Beck & Co.

In the public sector, Flynn served as the state of New Jersey’s director of public finance and was acting executive director at the New Jersey Educational Facilities Authority.
