JPMorgan Hires, Deutsche Rejigs

For Hire

JPMorgan Chase has hired Travis Machen from Morgan Stanley to run corporate banking for hedge funds, money managers and other mid-sized financial firms.

Bloomberg reports that Machen, 37, was co-head of Morgan Stanley’s North American banks group in the investment-bank division, New York-based JPMorgan said in a statement.

He’ll be in charge of JPMorgan’s financial institutions group within its commercial bank, which serves clients with $50m to $25bn in assets, the company said.

Bloomberg also reports that Deutsche Bank is reorganizing its debt team in Asia as Mark Whitcroft, a syndicate director in Singapore, relocates to the U.S.

Guillaume Du Cheyron, who most recently worked in Citigroup Inc.’s origination team in Hong Kong, joins Deutsche Bank as a director in fixed-income capital markets, according to an e-mailed statement from the bank. Haitham Ghattas, current co-head of leveraged debt capital markets for Asia, has been appointed as Asia head of high-yield syndicate, effective July 1, according to the statement.
