Bloomberg News reports that Deasy will be based in Credit Suisse’s London office, according to an internal memo obtained by Bloomberg and confirmed by a spokeswoman for the bank. Deasy is coming from Deutsche Bank, where he was head of natural resources M&A, the memo shows. He started at Deutsche Bank in 2007.
In the meantime, Bloomberg News also reports that Deutsche Bank promoted Charlie Dupree to lead mergers and acquisitions in the Americas and named Bank of America’s David King co-head of dealmaking for technology companies.
Dupree, who’s advised on some of the firm’s biggest transactions in industrials since joining from JPMorgan in 2006, is replacing Jim Ratigan, who’s stepping down to pursue opportunities elsewhere, according to an employee memo on Wednesday obtained by Bloomberg.
