LSE Said to Hire Schwieger From Merrill as Equities Head

London Stock Exchange Group Plc (LSE) hired Brian Schwieger from Bank of America Corp.’s Merrill Lynch unit, three people with knowledge of the plans said.

Schwieger will be based in London as head of equities at the exchange operator, said one of the people, who asked not to be identified because the details aren’t public.

He has been with Charlotte, North Carolina-based Bank of America since August 2005 and is responsible for sales, marketing and execution consulting for European equity electronic trading in London, according to his LinkedIn profile. He has also worked for New York-based Morgan Stanley.

Spokeswomen for LSE and Merrill Lynch declined to comment on the appointment.
