“We wish Ed a speedy recovery and look forward to his return to office soon,” three bank leaders, Alan Thomas, Gokul Laroia and David Russell, wrote in a statement on Monday.
Penny Novick and Kim Shaw have taken on a role from Keller as the world’s top business heads.

“For the past twelve years Ed has been working as a person in the growth of our big business and in addition to the return on our investment,” said Thomas, Laroia and Russell.
