Morgan Stanley has hired Dries Bruyland, an associate in derivative marketing to Netherlands at JPMorgan in London, as a senior associate in its financial institutions, debt capital markets group. Reached on his cell, Bruyland said he will focus on strategic client origination to Benelux as well as asset and liability management projects, reporting jointly to CJ Welkzijn, executive director in the group and Patrick Lighaam, a senior official in the European pensions group in Amsterdam. Welkzijn said the hire is part of an effort to beef up focus on Holland in particular.
At JPMorgan, Bruyland reported to Jeroen Wilbrink, head of derivatives marketing to the Netherlands, who left the firm earlier this year (DW, 2/3). Wilbrink has been connected to a similar role at Citigroup. He did not return messages left on his cell and officials at Citi were not immediately available for comment.
