CIBC announced the hires of Chris Eagle, Peter Snasdell and Helen Thomas to the foreign exchange business last Friday (February 12), in an internal memo.
Eagle and Snasdell join as executive directors, on March 1 and late March, respectively. Both report to Mark Sweeting, managing director and European head of the financial solutions group (FSG), in fixed income, currencies and distribution in London.
Thomas joins as director on March 1 also in the UK capital, reporting locally to Barnie Hartley, head of European fixed-income sales.
“Chris, Peter and Helen have many years of global markets experience covering product sales to institutional clients. All three will focus on sales and marketing across products to asset managers among the FSG client base,” said Sweeting in the memo.
Eagle previously worked at Morgan Stanley, Royal Bank of Scotland, Bank of America and most recently with Sweeting at Unicredit. Snasdell has worked at ABN Amro, BNP Paribas and RBC Capital Markets. Most recently he worked at Newedge as an FX sales trader in London (FX Week, June 23, 2008).
