Barclays appoints Stephen Pick as head of M&A for EMEA

Barclays has announced the appointment of Credit Suisse’s Stephen Pick as its new head of M&A for EMEA.

The British bank said that Pick will bring “a wealth of knowledge and deep expertise in acting for large cap Corporates and Financial Sponsors that will be pivotal in helping the bank capitalise on the recovering M&A market”.

Alongside the Credit Suisse veteran who will be based in London and report to Tim Main and Ihsan Essaid, Barclays said that it had also appointed Pier Luigi Colizzi as chairman of M&A for EMEA and Asim Mullick as head of M&A for Financial Sponsors for EMEA.

Colizzi, who has spent more than 11 years at Barclays, has been given a new role in which he will focus on advising the bank’s priority clients on strategic transactions.

Mullick meanwhile takes on a newly created role which will see him address growing demand from Sponsor clients. The executive will also continue to lead the company’s Paper & Packaging origination business.

Tim Main, head of investment banking, EMEA at Barclays, said: “Growing our share in M&A by increasing dialogue with Corporate and Financial Sponsor clients is an important part of our Investment Banking strategy, and a huge income lever to deliver on our financial commitments over the next three years.”

Ihsan Essaid, global head of M&A, added: “We welcome Stephen and we’re very confident that under Stephen’s leadership, we will work to secure more transformational mandates and deliver strong execution solutions for clients.”
