Mercuria Energy Trading SA hired Mike Harrison as a copper trader, three people with direct knowledge of the matter said.
Harrison will be based in London, said the people, who didn’t want to be named because the information hasn’t been made public. Harrison, previously a physical copper trader at Standard Bank Plc, starts work with Mercuria in March, two of the people said.
Erik Larsen, a spokesman for Standard Bank in Johannesburg, wasn’t immediately available for comment. Paul Chivers and Sophie Caverzasio, spokespeople for Mercuria, didn’t immediately respond to an e-mail seeking comment.
