Chase Securities last week nabbed Banc of America Securities' head of mortgage sales, Lawrence Doyle, in what some market sources described as a reunion of old mortgage kingpins.

Doyle, who is expected to undertake the same duties at Chase, was reportedly the one of the first hires current Chase MBS head Kevin Finnerty made at Bear Stearns & Co. in the early 1990s, as well as the first hire made when Finnerty built up the UBS Securities MBS shop in the mid-1990s. While Doyle's not the first hire this time around, a reunion between Doyle and Finnerty in Chase's Park Avenue headquarters was not a surprise to mortgage insiders.
