Noble Group Said to Hire Former Goldman Trader Evans for Metals

Noble Group Ltd. (NOBL), Asia’s biggest commodity trader by sales, hired former Goldman Sachs Group Inc. metals trader Scott Evans, according to two people with direct knowledge.

Evans will be based in Stamford, Connecticut, said the people, who asked not to be identified because the information hasn’t been announced.

Stephen Brown, director of corporate affairs at Hong Kong- based Noble, didn’t immediately respond to an e-mail seeking comment.

Noble hired David Freeland, previously a copper trader at Goldman in London, two people said last month. Noble’s physical and derivatives metals trading are managed by Mark Hansen, who joined in June.
