Investment bank Nomura has renewed its expansion of its Americas equities division with the addition of three senior, cash equity trading hires, for the technology, industrial and consumer sectors.
Kevin Kilgallen, Jeff Haise and Tom Terzulli will be based in New York and report to Ian Winer, managing director and head of US cash trading.
Kilgallen joins as managing director and senior technology trader. He brings nearly 20 years of sell-side trading experience to Nomura, and joins from US broker-dealer BTIG, where he was the head of US equity trading for the last two years. Prior to that, he was at Bank of America Merrill Lynch where he most recently held the position of head of technology trading.
Haise joins Nomura as executive director and senior industrial trader. He has 18 years of sell-side trading experience and joins from Deutsche Bank where he was a senior trader in the industrial sector. He spent six years at Bank of America and eight years at Goldman Sachs.
Terzulli joins as executive director and senior consumer trader. He brings 19 years of sell-side trading experience and joins from Deutsche Bank where he was a senior consumer trader. He began his trading career at Goldman Sachs, where he spent 13 years in various positions, most recently as a senior consumer retail Nasdaq block trader.
Nomura has been building up its cash, sales and research offerings in the US following the launch of its US equities business in October 2010. The firm appointed Samir Patel and Chris Valli in its US equities operation in that month, as well as two US cash equities heads. In addition, the company opened a new equities trading floor in New York.
