Luis Lesmes, Rajiv Panicker and Lou Montilla will join from Morgan Stanley’s London office, while Maggie Jia will leave the bank in Singapore, according to the people, who asked not to be identified because the information is confidential.

Officials at Glencore in Baar, Switzerland and Morgan Stanley in London declined to comment. Spark Spread reported the appointments earlier today.
