MOVES-Credit Suisse appoints Steven Geller as head of Americas M&A

Oct 30 (Reuters) - Investment bank Credit Suisse Group AG has appointed senior banker Steven Geller head of Americas M&A, according to an internal memo seen by Reuters on Monday and confirmed by a Credit Suisse spokeswoman.

Geller will also continue in his role as head of technology M&A. He joined Credit Suisse in 1994, and from 2008 to 2010 he was a managing director for global investment company Exor. He rejoined Credit Suisse in 2011.

Geller has advised on several large transactions over the course of his career, including NXP Semiconductors NV's $17 billion acquisition of Freescale Semiconductor Ltd; Analog Devices Inc's $16 billion deal for Linear Technology Corporation; and Vantiv Inc's $12 billion merger with Worldpay Group.

Earlier this year, Credit Suisse promoted Andy Lipsky and David Wah to co-heads of investment banking and capital markets in the Americas. (Reporting by Carl O'Donnell in New York; Editing by Sandra Maler)
