"I am very excited to join Jefferies thriving platform and growing fixed income effort, where I will be able to extend the firm's business as well as provide my clients with the additional products and services of Jefferies' full-service offering," Holloway said.
Holloway brings to Jefferies more than nineteen years of fixed-income sales experience. He was most recently a senior vice president at Vining Sparks, a regional broker-dealer based on Memphis, Tennessee, where he had a ten-year stint. At Vining, Holloway cultivated a diverse client base spanning Eastern Europe and the Middle East by selling U.S. agency bonds, corporate bonds and MBS to foreign banks.
Holloway moved to London in 1989 to begin his career in international banking, primarily selling U.S. Treasurys to central banks. Frequent business travel throughout Europe and the Middle East enabled Holloway to develop global business relationships, and he returned to the U.S. in 2000.
