Michael Ice, former managing director and North American head of rates, sales structuring and marketing at UBS in Stamford, Conn., has landed at Dresdner Kleinwort Wasserstein as a managing director heading up the firm's financial institutions group.
A recent reorganization to focus the business more on client lines, rather than product ones, made the position attractive, said Ice. As did the fact that it covers a broad spectrum of products, including interest-rate, credit and equity derivatives, he added.
Ice reports to Keith Fell, managing director and head of sales and marketing for North America, in New York, she added. Fell did not return calls. Ice left UBS earlier this year (DW, 5/4).
Late last month, David Schwartz, head of structured products marketing, left the firm to start a structured credit fund (DW, 12/1). He also reported to Fell.
