Bear Stearns has added Alexandre Winkler, v.p. in fixed income and credit sales at Société Générale in London, as an associate director in fixed income derivatives marketing to further develop the group's coverage of German and Austrian institutions. Winkler reports to Morad Mahlouji, senior managing director and head of fixed income derivatives marketing in London. Winkler declined comment.
Mahlouji said he has added to the team because the group's sales of structured products to Europe has grown substantially since last year. Last fall, Mahlouji hired Julien Petit from Bank of New York as a managing director in the fixed-income marketing group to grow that business (DW, 10/7).
At SG, Winkler reported to Marcus Ribka, head of cash and structured credit sales to Europe--ex-France--in London. Ribka did not return calls.
