Goldman Hires AWS Executive in Boost for Cloud Ambitions

Goldman Sachs has hired a well-known executive from Amazon Web Services for a top tech role, the clearest signal yet that the bank wants to increase its use of public cloud services. 

Marco Argenti, who has spent the past six years at AWS as vice president of technology, is joining Goldman as co-chief information officer, succeeding Elisha Wiesel who stepped down this week. At the same time, the bank has hired Atte Lahtiranta, most recently chief technology officer at Verizon’s media group, as chief technology officer.
