Citigroup recently moved John Dahl from its New York syndicate operations to its Hong Kong offices, where he will run the Global Securitized Markets operations for the Asia Pacific region. This includes Korea, Australia, New Zealand and India but not Japan, which is run by a separate group. Dahl was promoted to director, reporting to Jeremy Amias, head of Asia Pacific fixed income and U.S. ABS co-heads, Rob Malin and Ted Yarborough. Meanwhile, Amanda Magiaro has joined Citi's syndicate desk from the associate training program. She will be working with long-time Citi ABS syndicate veteran, Ish McLaughlin.
Sharon McGarvey has joined Merrill Lynch as a director in the firm's research strategy group, reporting to managing director Dan Castro. McGarver, formerly a portfolio manager at West LB, will focus on CDOs. Prior to her three-year stint at WestLB, McGarver worked at Met Life for nine years. She fills the void left by Joshua Anderson, who jumped to PIMCO in February (see ASR 2/24/03).
