Morgan Stanley re-hired John Collins, a mergers-and-acquisitions banker who left the firm three years ago to join Moelis & Co., for a newly created role as global operations officer for the investment-banking division.
Collins, 45, will start the job in New York in early July, according to Mark Lake, a spokesman for the New York-based bank. He will report to Mark Eichorn and Franck Petitgas, the global co-heads of investment banking.
Collins first joined Morgan Stanley in 1990 as an analyst in the firm’s real-estate banking group and spent most of his career in the mergers-and-acquisitions department, where he was promoted to managing director in 2004, according to Lake. He left to join Moelis in April 2010.
Morgan Stanley’s investment-banking division generated $945 million in first-quarter revenue, up 11 percent from a year earlier, the company reported last month.
