BlackRock has hired Brent Patry, the former vice chairman of acquisition and leveraged finance at Credit Suisse, as it continues to expand its credit business, according to people with knowledge of the matter.
Bloomberg News reports that Patry joined BlackRock as a managing director responsible for credit deal sourcing globally, said the people, who asked not to be identified because they weren’t authorized to speak publicly. He left Credit Suisse in August 2017 after almost two decades with the bank.
In the meantime, Reuters reports that Societe Generale has showed how banks are pushing ahead with Brexit contingency plans this week by advertising for someone to join the team reshaping its investment banking.
SocGen said in a job posting published on its careers website on Feb. 7, it was looking for “a member of a project team dedicated to the Brexit operational delivery execution stream”.
