D.E. Shaw & Co. has hired Christopher Zaback as CFO and a managing director, assuming the title previously held by Stuart Steckler, who will retain overall responsibility for most firm-wide infrastructure.

Zaback joins D.E. Shaw from Sandelman Partners, where he served as co-chief operating officer and previously as CFO. Prior to that, he was a director and co-head of the middle office of Moore Capital Management and a vice president in the equities division at Goldman Sachs.
