Goldman - One In, Two Out

Lloyd Fonzie Blankfein

Citigroup lobbyist Amy Overton is leaving the bank for Wall Street rival Goldman Sachs.

Reuters reports that Overton, 43, will handle a broad range of issues for Goldman, a spokesman for the firm said.

Overton spent less than two years at Citigroup, and previously worked as counsel to Senator Tom Carper, a Democrat of Delaware, during negotiations for the Dodd-Frank Act.

In the meantime, The Wall Street Journal reports that Goldman partner Greg Tusar, who is leaving his job overseeing the bank's electronic-trading business, plans to join Getco LLC later this year after the Chicago trading firm completes its acquisition of Knight Capital Group, according to people familiar with the matter.

Finally, Bloomberg reports that Dorothee Blessing, who rose to become co-head of investment banking for Germany and Austria at Goldman in a career spanning two decades, is leaving the U.S. investment bank and securities firm.

Blessing, 45, has decided to retire from Goldman Sachs after “20 years of distinguished service,” according to an internal memo obtained by Bloomberg News. Her departure was first reported by German publication Manager Magazin, which said she’s leaving for personal reasons.
