Credit Suisse Group AG named Michael Muntner and Charlie Newton as co-heads of its Americas health-care banking team.
The appointments are effective immediately, according to a memo obtained by Bloomberg News. A spokesman for Credit Suisse confirmed the memo’s contents.
Muntner advised Express Scripts Holding Co. on its $29 billion acquisition of Medco Health Solutions Inc. announced in 2011 and helped to raise financing. Newton advised drugmaker Amylin Pharmaceuticals Inc. when the company was sold last year to Bristol-Myers Squibb Co. for $5.3 billion.
They will report to Tom Davidson and Stuart Smith, global co-heads of health-care banking.
