Wachovia Taps Bear Stearns Alumnus as Fixed-Income Chief
Wachovia Securities said it hired former Bear Stearns fixed-income co-head Craig Overlander as its global head of fixed income.
Starting Sept. 15, he'll be based jointly in Charlotte and New York and will report to Ben Williams, head of global markets and investment banking.
Overlander is the latest in a long list of senior-level Bear Stearns alumni landing prominent roles at other financial institutions, both buy-side and sell-side.
He spent 26 years at Bear, most recently as as managing director and co-head of fixed income. "He has been closely involved in managing the transition during the firm's acquisition by J.P. Morgan," Wachovia said. He graduated from Williams College.
