LONDON Newedge Group SA has named Peter Barrowcliff as global head of metals and Brian Flaherty as U.S. head of metals, the company said Wednesday.
Barrowcliff, who will be based in London, joined the ring-dealing London Metal Exchange member in July as global chief operating officer for metals. He has been in the industry for more than 35 years and previously held senior positions at Nomura Group in Hong Kong and Lehman Brothers Holdings Inc. in New York.
Flaherty, who joins Newedge from JPMorgan & Chase Co., will focus on expanding Newedges U.S. metals platform and customer base.
Newedge has been building up its metal team since losing several veterans earlier this year, including Mike Frawley, former global head of metals, and Steve Pettitt, head of metals trading in London (amm.com, June 20).
