Iron Bob

Kevin Shea, an interest-rate salesman at Goldman Sachs who has worked at the firm for 27 years, is retiring, according to a person briefed on the decision.

Bloomberg reports that Shea, 48, is leaving as of this month, said the person, who asked to remain anonymous because the decision hadn’t been made public.

He joined New York-based Goldman Sachs in 1987 and was named managing director in 2010.

In the meantime, Bloomberg reports that Atlas Merchant Capital, the investment firm started last year by former Barclays CEO Bob Diamond, hired David Schamis as a founding partner.

Schamis, a former managing director at buyout firm J.C. Flowers, will oversee private-equity investing, according to a statement yesterday from New York-based Atlas.
