Nomura Holdings Inc.’s co-head of fixed-income sales for Asia, George Sun, left the bank today, according to a person familiar with the matter.
Sun, who was based in Hong Kong, is taking a senior sales role at another sell-side bank and will remain in Asia, the person said, asking not to be identified because the details are private.
Sun confirmed his departure when contacted on his mobile phone today. He joined Nomura in 2008 from Lehman Brothers Holdings Inc. after the Japanese bank acquired Lehman’s Asian and European assets.
Felicity Albert, a Hong Kong-based spokeswoman for Nomura, declined to comment on Sun’s departure when contacted by telephone today.
