Nomura Hires Citadel Banker Mayer, Deutsche Bank’s Cunningham

September 20, 2011

Sept. 20 (Bloomberg) -- Nomura Holdings Inc., Japan’s largest broker, hired former Citadel LLC leveraged-finance banker Carl Mayer after its co-heads of leveraged finance for the Americas departed.

Nomura also added Stephen M. Cunningham, Deutsche Bank AG’s head of Latin American merger advisory and corporate finance. The hirings were made last week and disclosed on the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority’s website. Jonathan Hodgkinson, a spokesman for Nomura in New York, declined to comment.

Cunningham was at Deutsche Bank since 2006, and previously worked in Latin America for Morgan Stanley.

Mayer, 49, head of leveraged finance at Citadel LLC’s startup investment-banking unit, left in January as the effort foundered. Citadel shut part of the business and agreed to sell the remainder to Wells Fargo & Co.

Steven Seltzer, a co-head of leveraged finance for the Americas, left Nomura in July to join JPMorgan Chase & Co. The other co-head, Julie Persily, also departed.
