Credit Suisse’s Manish Vekaria will be leaving his post as head of prime services Ireland and CEO of its Dublin Branch in the coming weeks. Vekaria, who was previously the investment bank’s Emea co-head of prime, relocated to Dublin for his current role late last year ahead of the bank shifting its European prime brokerage operations to the Irish capital in a move that saw up to 100 roles relocate. Vekaria’s interim replacement will be London-based head of European prime services Jeff Jennings who will take on the additional responsibilities until a permanent replacement is appointed.

German exchange Eurex has hired former CME clearing sales head Adam Husted to jointly run a nascent program designed to break LCH’s dominance of interest rate swap clearing. Frankfurt-based Eurex hired Husted on December 18 as its London-based co-head of global partner banks relationship management, a role that involves encouraging the largest swaps dealers to clear more of their European interest rate swaps (IRS) at Eurex Clearing.

Scott Eaton, the chief operating officer for MarketAxess Europe, is leaving the company to pursue other interests. Eaton's departure comes less than a year after a major hire in MarketAxess's European business. Christophe Roupie, the former global head of trading at AXA Investment Managers, was named head of Europe and Asia for MarketAxess in February.

FlexTrade has appointed Manuela Bauer as multi-asset sales director. She will work to help push the recently launched fixed income execution management system (EMS) across Europe, and will also work closely with the buy-side to support FlexTrade’s delivery of its cross-asset trading services. Bauer joins from LSEG’s MTS where she spent more than a year overseeing buy-side sales in Germany and the Nordics. Prior to that she held various positions within LSEG’s capital markets division. Bauer’s new responsibilities include growing FlexTrade’s newly launched Fixed Income EMS across continental Europe and working closely with the buy-side to support FlexTrade’s delivery of best in class cross-asset trading solutions.
