For Hire

Barclays has appointed Managing Director Robert Bogucki to the role of global head of power, natural gas, emissions, coal and freight trading, two people with direct knowledge of the matter said.

Bloomberg reports that the appointment is part of the bank’s plan to split its global energy group into two divisions, one for crude and oil products and another unit covering electricity, gas, coal and freight, said the people, who declined to be identified because the information isn’t public.

Bogucki will remain in charge of G10 currency trading in the Americas and emerging markets currency trading in Latin America, one of the people said.

In the meantime, Bloomberg also reports that Credit Suisse has named Marisa Drew and Ewen Stevenson as co-heads of European investment banking to replace Jamie Welch, who will leave to join a client.

Drew is co-head of the global market solutions group and Stevenson is co-head of the global financial institutions group, the bank said in memorandums to employees today, whose contents were confirmed by a Credit Suisse spokeswoman in London. Welch will join Dallas-based Energy Transfer Partners LP (ETP) as group Chief Financial Officer and head of corporate development.

Finally, The Wall Street Journal reports that South African bank Investec has made its second senior hire in Australia in as many months, appointing Rhys Gwyn as head of financial markets.

Gwyn was formerly the co-head of Goldman's fixed income, currency and commodities and equities divisions in Australia. He left the Wall Street bank last year.
