Citigroup is continuing to rebuild its prime brokerage business with three new hires.
Norman Escoffery, Christopher Greer and Sean McGinty have joined the bank’s Americas prime brokerage. Escoffery was named head of client-facing technology, Greer head of sales and McGinty as head of product development.
The trio will report to Alan Pace, the former Lehman Brothers prime brokerage executive and Real Salt Lake soccer team president, who was named head of prime brokerage in the Americas in April. In March, Citi ousted prime brokerage co-heads Ali Hackett and Tom Tesauro in a cost-cutting move.
Escoffery and McGinty most recently worked at Lehman Brothers, while Greer joins Citi from hedge fund Forest Investment Management.
