Georgina Kessel will head Mexico’s Banobras, replacing Alonso Garcia Tames, according to a spokeswoman for the government development bank. Kessel was previously energy secretary, and has been replaced by Jose Antonio Meade, who moves from the position of deputy finance minister. Tames will next week join Citi’s global banking LatAm group as a managing director. Kessel was named energy minister in 2006 by president Felipe Calderon. She was Mexico’s first female energy minster.
