Leon Gillespie Joins Canaccord Genuity as Head of Financial Sponsors

Leon Gillespie, 32, has just joined Canaccord Genuity Corp. as the new London-based head of Financial Sponsors. It's a big job and he has a hard act to follow, after his predecessor Jacques Callaghan left in February to join Macquarie Capital. But it was only in 2008, when he moved to Hong Kong for what he calls "lifestyle reasons" after "doing a few irrelevant jobs and playing a bit of rugby" that Gillespie's career in financial services really began. That just happened to be the week in which Lehman Brothers Holdings Inc. collapsed. So when he joined KPMG China in the corporate finance business, working on origination for private equity clients and identifying and approaching potential targets, it was "fortuitous timing." By the time Gillespie moved back to London three years later, after extensive travel in China from his Hong Kong base, he had both origination and private equity business development experience under his belt. He was able to continue in that private equity coverage role at KPMG in the U.K. Within two years he was promoted to head of private equity coverage at KPMG in London, serving priority clients with direct origination as well as managing the sell-side pipeline and maintaining his Asia advice role.
