SG appoints

SG has appointed Chris Lovgren as director in its London-based leverage loan distribution team. He joins from UBS where he worked for four years as a director.

Lovgren, working alongside fellow director Haresh Sheth, will focus on banks and funds and senior and mezzanine debt in the European LBO market, focusing on the French, German and UK markets. He will report to Chris Baines, head of loan distribution.

Lovgren is currently on gardening leave and will take up his new position in early May.

The hire follows the bank’s appointment of two new originators, Joachim Erdie and Hans Twietmeyer, to its German team earlier this year.
