Scott Gewirtz, co-head of Treasury trading at Deutsche Bank, has left the bank and is reportedly headed to Lehman Brothers to run its Treasury trading desk, according to an official familiar with his plans. At Deutsche Bank, Gewirtz reported to Jon Kinol, head of global rates for North America. Jason Evans, who co-headed the desk with Gewirtz, will now be the sole head, according to a Deutsche Bank official. Kinol did not return phone calls by press time.
At Lehman, Gewirtz would fill a spot that has been vacant since J.P. Marra left in February to head the Treasury trading desk at Banc of America Securities (BW, 2/21). Gewirtz did not return a call by press time and a Lehman spokeswoman could not provide more information.
