Citadel’s Equities Co-Chief Weller Said to Leave Firm

Steve Weller, co-head of Citadel LLC’s global equities group, left after more than a decade at the hedge fund run by Kenneth Griffin, according to two people familiar with the matter.

Weller departed from the Chicago-based firm last week, said the people, who asked not to be identified because the information is private. Brandon Haley, 38, who ran the group with Weller, was picked as the unit’s sole head, Katie Spring, a spokeswoman for Citadel, confirmed by phone today. Investors were told about the management change on Feb. 6, she said.
