Deutsche Bank today announced three new hires which will serve as the core of a newly established ECM Execution Group in the Americas. The new group will be comprised of two Managing Directors and a Director and will oversee execution of franchise business with support from origination in ECM as well as Corporate Finance coverage teams.
Jay Coleman will join the Bank as a Managing Director and Head of Equity Capital Markets Execution, Americas. Coleman joins from Barclays/Lehman, where he most recently served as Global Head of Equity Capital Markets Execution. Prior to leading the Barclays/Lehman equity execution practice, Coleman worked at Morgan Stanley where he was responsible for executing a variety of equity transactions for that firm. Coleman has more than 13 years’ experience in capital markets.
In addition, Mark Schwartz and Ben Marsh will join as a Managing Director and Director, respectively. Schwartz has been a Director at Barclays/Lehman in the firm’s Equity Capital Markets Execution Group for the past four years. Prior to that he was a lawyer at both Davis Polk and the SEC. Marsh also will join from Barclays/Lehman, where he was a Director and Head of the Mergers & Acquisitions Conflicts Group within the Compliance Department as well as previously holding an ECM execution role. He too practiced law at Davis Polk. Both Schwartz and Marsh will report to Mr. Coleman.
All three individuals will join after a notice period and will be based in New York.
“Jay, Mark, and Ben bring a unique breadth of experience and special execution expertise to the Equity Capital Markets platform at Deutsche Bank”, said Mark Hantho, Global Co-Head of Equity Capital Markets. “We’re confident that this new execution group within ECM will further increase the momentum in the growth of our equity business and is a critical component in DB’s broader investment across the entire North America equities complex.”
As of June 30, Deutsche Bank ranked #4 in the US Equity and Equity-linked league table based on Dealogic data, up from #7 in 2009 and its highest position ever.
