Citigroup Said to Hire BNP’s Gregorio in Credit-Default Swaps

Citigroup Inc. has hired Glen Gregorio, a derivatives trader at BNP Paribas SA for the past three years, according to a person with knowledge of the matter.

Gregorio will join Citigroup’s credit-default swaps group in New York, said the person, who asked not to be identified because the move hasn’t been announced. He departed BNP as of July 31, spokeswoman Cesaltine Gregorio said in a telephone interview.

Danielle Romero-Apsilos, a spokeswoman for New York-based Citigroup, declined to comment. Gregorio didn’t respond to e-mail messages requesting an interview.

Gregorio started at BNP in August 2010 and worked at Deutsche Bank AG from 2002 through 2010, according to records from the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority.
