Lloyds Bank Commercial Banking has further strengthened its Markets teams with the transfer of Kristan Gochee and appointment of Thomas Oh to its North America headquarters in New York.
Gochee joined Lloyds Bank in April 2014 as Senior Vice President of Credit Trading and successfully launched the US ABS trading business. In order to augment Lloyds Bank’s US ABS offering with a dedicated ABS syndicate service, she has now transfered to head up the North America ABS Syndicate, reporting to Wesley Fallan, Director US Bond Syndicate in the US and Bob Paterson, Managing Director, Head of ABS Syndicate in the UK.
Gochee will be replaced as Senior Vice President of Credit Trading by Oh, who joins Lloyds Bank next month, reporting to Kerry Stein, Head of Credit Trading. Oh joins from Robert Baird where he was Director - Consumer ABS Fixed Income Trader since 2011. Oh has 22 years’ experience in the banking industry having held a number of positions at Credit Suisse, Bear Stearns and Sandler O’Neill.
Andy Schaeffer, Head of Markets, commented: “Since the start of 2014 we have seen significant growth in our Markets business, as we have enhanced the services we offer our North America clients to meet their growing needs.
“Kristan is perfectly placed to act as our dedicated ABS syndicate given her experience and deep knowledge of the ABS market and participants. I am delighted to have Thomas, such a well respected and experienced ABS trader, join the team. These hires, who join Wes Fallan, Director US Bond Syndicate and Parker Russell, Managing Director, Head of the US Securitized Products Group, complete our ABS build-out and continue to enhance our ability to support issuers and investors in accessing the US, UK and European markets.”
