KeyBanc Capital Markets, the corporate and investment banking arm of KeyCorp appointed Corey Whitbeck and Robert Campbell to its high yield sales team in Albany, N.Y., further expanding the firm’s capital markets group.
Both Whitbeck and Campbell join the bank as directors in high yield sales, coming over from CL King & Associates. The two new hires will report to Jon Kline, head of high yield sales in New York.
“KeyBanc Capital Markets continues to strengthen all areas of its fixed income platform and recently priced its first left-lead book-runner for CareTrust REIT, Inc., pricing $300 million in senior unsecured notes,” Brian Brennan, head of fixed income at KeyBanc, said in a press release Wednesday. “We remain committed to advancing all aspects of our fixed income business and these strategic hires further expand our overall high yield platform. Corey and Robert bring a wealth of knowledge and sales experience, and we look forward to their contributions.”
Whitbeck and Campbell bring a combined 15 years of fixed income sales and trading experience to Key. Whitbeck previously served as a managing director and head of high yield sales at CL King, where he was responsible for managing all aspects of high yield sales. Before that, he worked at Bernstein Global Wealth Management and SPP Capital Partners.
Campbell was most recently a managing director focused on high yield, investment grade and convertible bond trading at CL King. He previously worked at Swiss Re.
These newest moves come after the addition of Tim Zaino, who joined from UBS as a director in November 2016. The hires continue the bank’s focus on building out its high yield sales group, according to the release.
