Goldman Sachs has hired London-based oil marketer Roy Golender as vice president of energy sales from Barclays, a company spokesman said on Wednesday.
Reuters reports that at Barclays, Golender spent four years in commodity derivatives sales, according to his LinkedIn profile.
Goldman has affirmed its commitment to commodities trading even as other banks have left the sector or scaled back their activities in the face of public and regulatory scrutiny.
In the meantime, Credit Suisse has named senior banker Tom Davidson vice chairman of its global healthcare group, according to a memo released to employees on Wednesday.
The news agency reports that Davidson will focus his efforts on some of the bank's largest pharmaceutical clients globally at a time when healthcare M&A continues to surge.
He has worked on recent deals, including advising Merck & Co Inc on its $3.85bn acquisition of biopharmaceutical company Idenix and advising specialty pharma company Paladin Labs on its sale to Endo Health Solutions for $1.5bn.
