Citadel Securities has appointed Matt Culek to chief operating officer after over six years at the market maker. Based in Chicago, Culek will serve as COO as of December 2018. He assumes a title left vacant after former COO Scott Johnston became chief administrative officer at Citadel (hedge fund) business, in June last year. Culek joined Citadel Securities in 2012 and served as COO of Citadel Execution Services for four years before taking on the same role for the equities and options business for five months until May 2017.

Daniel Sanders, one of BofA's most senior equities professionals in London, has moved. Sanders, who was co-head of equities trading for EMEA, moved to New York in October 2018. His move was not reported at the time. In his new role, Sanders is understood to be heading execution services trading for the Americas region. BAML insiders say Sanders was one of the longest serving equities professionals at the bank in London. He joined Merrill Lynch in 2001 - just six years after the bank bought Smith New Court, the UK's largest independent stock broker, and had been in a senior equities trading role since at least 2012.
