Credit Suisse Names Yoon as Asia-Pacific Fixed Income Head, Stoehr Leaves

Credit Suisse Group AG (CSGN) has appointed Brian Yoon as its new head of Asia-Pacific fixed income, according to an internal memo seen by Bloomberg News.

Yoon replaces Carsten Stoehr, who has left the bank, according to two people familiar with the matter, who asked not to be identified because the matter is private. Stoehr has worked at Credit Suisse since at least 1994 and has led the regional fixed income team since 2009, according to data compiled by Bloomberg.

Yoon will start the role in Hong Kong on Dec. 1 in addition to his role as the region’s head of emerging market trading, the memo said.

Yoon will report to Gael de Boissard and Tim O’Hara, the co-heads of global securities, and to Asia-Pacific Chief Executive Officer Osama Abbasi, according to the memo.
