Goldman Names Dibelius and Scherrer to New Industrials Roles

Goldman Sachs Group Inc. named Alex Dibelius and Clare Scherrer to new leadership positions at a unit that provides strategic and financial advice to industrial clients.

Dibelius was appointed chairman of the global industrials group and Scherrer co-head, alongside Dusty Philip, according to an internal memo obtained by Bloomberg News, whose contents were confirmed by the bank.

Goldman Sachs, based in New York, is No. 3 in global industrials deals this year, according to data compiled by Bloomberg. The bank advised on transactions including Charterhouse Capital Partners LLP’s sale of German energy-metering business Ista International GmbH to CVC Capital Partners Ltd. in April.

Scherrer, currently chief operating officer of the global industrials group, is the third female executive to be promoted to a management role at the investment bank this year. The others include Kate Richdale, who was named the head of investment-banking services in Asia, and Christina Minnis, who last month was appointed co-head of healthcare Americas.

Dibelius is currently co-head of the global industrials group and has overall responsibility for the firm’s business in Germany, Austria, and Central and Eastern Europe, the memo says.
