Goldman Sachs promoted Murphy to the post of co-head of leveraged finance in the Americas alongside Craig Packer just last month. She joined the firm from BofA Merrill last year

In her new role at BofA Merrill, she will work alongside Robert Schleusner.

Following Murphy’s departure, Goldman promoted Christina Minnis to serve as co-head of leveraged finance with Packer. Minnis was most recently head of corporate finance within the bank’s consumer retail and healthcare group.
