Credit Suisse has a new head of Canadian mergers and acquisitions, replacing a long-time banker with a fresh hire.

The firm brought in Brad Cameron, most recently at Bank of America Merrill Lynch, to fill the role. At Bank of America, Mr. Cameron had been head of Canadian M&A. Before that he spent 17 years at RBC Dominion Securities, where he was a senior investment banker.

Mr. Cameron brings a focus on the two sectors of Canadian deal activity that have tended to matter most: mining and energy. Deals on his resumé include the oil patch's biggest-ever merger, working with Petro-Canada on its sale to Suncor Energy Inc.

Credit Suisse has built a nice franchise advising on M&A in Canada, consistently ranking among the busier non-Canadian banks. The firm has been steadily hiring in Canada, much of it in the energy area.

At Credit Suisse, Mr. Cameron will be sliding into a chair long held by banker Don Robertson. After six years with Credit Suisse, Mr. Robertson recently departed. It's not clear yet where he will end up.

Credit Suisse also lost Steve Latimer lately. He was tapped by rival Jefferies & Co. to lead its new Canadian investment-banking business.
