Bank of Nova Scotia hired Michael Schoen as head of debt capital markets origination for Latin America after he worked for more than a decade in a similar role at Credit Suisse Group AG.
He will be based in New York and report to Paul Stamoulis and Greg Woynarski, co-heads of credit capital markets, said Joe Konecny, a spokesman, in an e-mail message. Schoen left Credit Suisse in November.
Schoen moved from JPMorgan Chase & Co. to Donaldson, Lufkin & Jenrette Inc. in 2000. The investment bank was acquired by Credit Suisse later that year.
