People Moves: JPM bags new China investment banking chief; Macquarie names new Asia ECM bosses
Goldmanite named JP Morgan head of global IB. Houston Huang, a man with over two decades of deal making experience under his belt, has been named head of Global Investment Banking, China by JP Morgan. David Li, the firm’s Chairman and CEO for China, seemed pretty stoked by the investment banking giant’s new hire:
“We are delighted that Houston will be joining J.P. Morgan. He brings with him strong experience and unique insight to the firm having worked on landmark transactions across multiple sectors. He is an exceptional addition to our investment banking team in the region.”
Prior to joining the vaunted firm, Huang spent four years at Goldman Sachs, where his most recent role was Managing Director and head of its China Industrials Group. Before that, Huang worked at the behemoth China International Capital Corporation, serving the bank in various key roles and advising on several mammoth deals. He reports to David Li.

Macquarie appoints new co-chiefs of Asia ECM. Arthur Van Dijk and Jack Yee, two heavies in the ECM scene, have been appointed co-heads of equity capital markets in Asia by the Australian firm, Macquarie.
Van Dijk was most recently Managing Director of Macquarie’s ECM team, joining the bank back in 2012 after cutting his teeth at Morgan Stanley straight out of college. Yee meanwhile joins the firm from Barclays, where his most recent role was Managing Director and head of the British bank’s Asia equity syndicate. He jumped to Barclays from Nomura, after spending over 10 years of his career at Lehman Brothers. Van Dijk is set to run deal origination while Yee will be taking care of the syndicating side. They are both filling the shoes of Jeremy Weinert, who was promoted last year to regional head of Macquarie Capital. Finance Asia
