Top Morgan Stanley banker killed in tragic train crash


Sad to report.

Eric Vandercar, who managed municipal funding during a 27-year career at Morgan Stanley before joining Mesirow Financial one year ago, was among the six people killed when a Metro-North Railroad train collided with a vehicle in Westchester County, New York. He was 53.

Bloomberg News reports that he lived with his family in Bedford Hills, New York, about 40 miles (64 kilometers) north of Grand Central Terminal, where the train departed.

Vandercar joined Mesirow’s New York office in March as a senior managing director in institutional sales and trading and head of municipal funding, according to an e-mailed statement from Deborah Krieps, a Managing Director at the Chicago-based firm.
