Early life

Moynihan was born in Marietta, Ohio in 1959.[1] He graduated from Brown University in 1981, where he majored in history, co-captained the rugby team, and met his future wife, classmate Susan E. Berry.[5][6]

He earned a J.D. from the University of Notre Dame Law School,[7] before returning to Providence, Rhode Island to join Edwards & Angell LLP, the city’s largest corporate law firm.[6]


Moynihan has held numerous banking positions before assuming the role of President of Consumer and Small Business Banking at Bank of America in January 2009.[2] He originally joined Fleet Boston in April 1993 as Deputy General Counsel, after being recruited from Edwards & Angell by Fleet's then-CEO, Terrence Murray.[7] From 1999 to April 2004, he served as Executive Vice President, with responsibility for Fleet's brokerage and wealth management divisions after 2000. After Bank of America merged with FleetBoston Financial in 2004, Moynihan joined the bank as a president of global wealth and investment management.[8]

From December 2008 to January 2009, Moynihan served as General Counsel for Bank of America. From October 2007 to December 2008, he served as President of Global Corporate and Investment Banking, in which he also became the CEO of Merrill Lynch after its sale to Bank of America in September 2008.[2]
