People News: Barclays, KKR, Greenhill, Goldman

way out

Jonathan Conway, Barclays’ head of credit restructuring in Europe, the Middle East and Africa, has left to join private-equity firm KKR & Co.’s Pillarstone business, according to a person with knowledge of the matter.

Bloomberg News reports that Conway, who managed a team of 12 specialists for the British investment bank, joined Pillarstone in London as a partner on June 16, said the person, who asked not to be named because the move hasn’t been made public yet. He will help to expand the company, which was started last year to advise banks in managing their non-core and underperforming assets, said the person.

In the meantime, Bloomberg also reports that Greenhill, the investment bank formed by Bob Greenhill, hired Steve Mayer as a managing director to oversee the firm’s Canadian business.

Mayer most recently spent more than 10 years at Goldman Sachs, Greenhill said Monday in a statement. He replaces Brad Crompton, 61, who helped Greenhill develop its business in Canada and will switch to a senior adviser role, working with key clients. Mayer, 48, will be based in Toronto and report to Chief Executive Officer Scott Bok.
