Blackstone is hiring a former top enforcement attorney at the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, months after the world’s biggest alternative-asset manager agreed to its first SEC penalty, two people with knowledge of the move said.
Bloomberg News reports that Marshall Sprung will be a managing director and global head of compliance at Blackstone, said the people, who asked not to be named because the hire hasn’t been announced. He worked as co-head of the asset management unit within the enforcement division of the SEC, which announced his departure last month.
In the meantime, Bloomberg also reports that Deutsche Bank named Darren Campili as global co-head of health-care investment banking coverage, according to a spokeswoman for the bank.
Campili, who had been head of health-care investment banking for Europe, the Middle East and Africa for six years, will continue to be based in London and report to Alasdair Warren, who leads corporate and investment banking in EMEA, the spokeswoman said.
Pierson, who also led financial institutions investment banking in the Americas at UBS, will start at Lovell Minnick next month. Before 2013 he was co-head of the financial institutions group at Credit Suisse.
