Regional sales build-out reflects the firm’s continued investment in US Cash Equities

Deutsche Bank Securities Inc. today announced two new hires in the firm’s Global Markets division. Tim Hooper has joined the division’s Institutional Client Group as a Managing Director and Head of Southeast US Cash Equity Sales. Hooper is based in Atlanta, Georgia, and reports to Derek Capanna, Managing Director and Co-Global Head of Cash Equity Sales. In his new role, Hooper will manage the firm’s Southeast cash equity sales team, including Texas.

Hooper joins from JPMorgan, where he was a managing director responsible for the Southeast and Texas regions. He joins Deutsche Bank with 17 years of industry experience, and has held institutional equity sales roles in Georgia, Texas, and Florida throughout his career.

The firm also announced that Stacey Biggers has joined as a Vice President in cash equity sales, based in Dallas, Texas, reporting to Hooper. She joins from JPMorgan’s Dallas office, where she was responsible for institutional equity sales.  

“We are delighted to welcome Tim to our team and excited about the continued expansion of our franchise throughout the US,” said Robert Ebert, Managing Director and Head of the Institutional Client Group, Equity in North America. “The Southeast will continue to be a key component of our US business, and we are confident in Tim’s ability to serve our clients in the region.”

The hires are the latest in the ongoing expansion of Deutsche Bank’s US Cash Equities business. Earlier this month, the firm announced that Chris O’Hea and Robert Garofolo joined as Directors in the firm’s Institutional Client Group in Chicago, reporting to Greg Kiesel, Managing Director and Head of Chicago Equity Sales.
