Convergex has made four hires for its London-based brokerage.

Philip Gough has joined the firm as chief executive officer of Convergex Limited while John Holl has joined as managing director and head of Convergex Limited’s sales and trading.

Gough most recently served as chief operating officer for KCG Europe, and previously held senior management positions at PricewaterhouseCoopers and Barclays. Holl has held senior trading positions at Cantor Fitzgerald Europe, Citigroup Global Markets and Credit Suisse First Boston. Most notably, he spent more than nine years at KCG Europe, where he served as head of European institutional equities.
Gough will oversee all aspects of Convergex’s international business operations and will serve on the firm’s executive committee.

“Phil and John are proven leaders and seasoned managers; we couldn’t be happier to have them joining the Convergex team,” said Eric Noll, Convergex president and CEO, in a statement. “As we continue to grow our international business, their extensive experience in global capital markets will be invaluable. Working together in the past, they have demonstrated the ability to build an execution model that serves clients in innovative and exciting ways.”
Convergex has also added two senior sales traders to its London staff, David Evans and Deepam Bhambhani. Both Evans and Bhambhani recently worked as sales traders at Cantor Fitzgerald Europe.
