Citigroup Adds Keijer, Andre From Goldman for Senior Sales Rolesby
Citigroup Inc. hired Goldman Sachs Group Inc. derivatives veterans Dirk Keijer and Quentin Andre for senior sales roles.
Keijer, who spent 20 years at Goldman Sachs and ran the firm’s equity derivative sales for Europe, will serve as head of equity derivative sales for Europe, the Middle East and Africa, Citigroup said in a staff memo obtained by Bloomberg.
Andre will join as head of global structured sales. At his former employer, he oversaw equity and fund derivatives structuring and marketing in the EMEA region, and served as head of cross-asset systematic strategies, according to the memo.
“These hires reflect Citi’s focus on growing its equity and derivatives franchise through continued investment in top talent,” James Boyle, Citigroup’s global head of equity derivatives, wrote in the memo. The Financial Times reported the appointments earlier on Wednesday.
