Salomon taps 3 Merrill exex

Richards, Ladouceut, Collins hired away

Investment bank Salomon Smith Barney’s media practice just got a lot bigger as the firm said Thursday it hired three bankers away from Merrill Lynch.

Daniel Richards will join Salomon as a managing director. Evan Ladouceut and Tristam Collins will be directors. They held the same titles at Merrill.

The group will report to Fehmi Zeko, head of Salomon’s Global Media and Leisure Group.

Gregg Siebert, managing director and head of Merrill’s Global Media Group, said, “These are three out of the more than 60 professionals employed on a worldwide basis and we don’t expect (their departures) to have any material effect on our operations.”
