Credit Suisse has appointed a former Bank of America Merrill Lynch employee, Roger Lehman, as managing director and head of commercial mortgage-backed securities research.
Lehman had been co-head of structured finance research at BofA Merrill Lynch, having joined Merrill Lynch in 1991.
In his new role, which he’ll assume on August 1, Credit Suisse says Lehman will be responsible for research and analysis supporting the bank’s re-entry into CMBS origination as well as its secondary trading desk. He will report to Dale Westhoff, global head of securitized products research. Lehman will take up his new post on August 1.
"Roger brings a wealth of experience and expertise in real estate finance and securitization to Credit Suisse," said Westhoff. "Hiring a seasoned veteran of his caliber demonstrates our commitment to building an industry-leading full-service CMBS franchise."
Credit Suisse is headquartered in Zurich and operates in over 50 countries worldwide. The group employs approximately 50,100 people.
