People News: Goldman Sachs, C Suisse, Nomura

Goldman Sachs hired Sarah-Marie Martin as a partner in its financial-sponsors group, luring away a Credit Suisse banker who works with the world’s largest private-equity firms, according to a person with knowledge of the hire.

Bloomberg News reports that Martin, who helped run Credit Suisse’s financial sponsors group in the Americas, will join the bank after a so-called gardening leave, said the person, asking for anonymity to discuss personnel. Michael DuVally, a bank spokesman, declined to comment.

In the meantime, Reuters reports that Nomura has appointed Jan Newman and Ben Lowther, previously of Newman Lowther & Associates, to lead a new office and team in South Africa, which it said will be a platform for the investment bank to expand in the continent.

The establishment of Nomura South Africa from April 4 will boost the bank's ability to provide local and international clients with investment banking services in the country and "provide Nomura with a platform for expansion into and across sub-Saharan Africa," Nomura said on Tuesday.
