EMEA – Barclays Investment Bank announced the appointment of Davide Sala as a Managing Director (MD) and Head of Industrials M&A for Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA), effective November 2021.
Davide will report to Pier Luigi Colizzi, Head of Investment Banking, Continental Europe, and Co-Head of M&A, EMEA, and Omar Faruqui, Co-Head of M&A, EMEA. He will lead Barclays M&A client dialogue for European clients in the industrials sector, working closely with Asim Mullick and Richard Probert, Co-Heads of Industrials Investment Banking.
“The Industrials sector is an important focus in building the success of our banking franchise across Europe, and this hire demonstrates our continued investment to further strengthen our European banking capabilities,” Reid Marsh, Head of Banking, Europe, Middle East and Asia Pacific, said.
Davide joins Barclays from Credit Suisse where he has spent the last 22 years in both London and New York. The majority of his career has been dedicated to providing M&A and financing advice to clients across the entire industrials sector.
Most recently, he was Head of European Diversified Industrials and Aerospace and Head of European Building Materials coverage. Davide has advised on many M&A transactions for clients in the sector including Airbus, CNH Industrial, Fincantieri, GE Aviation, Holcim, Rolls-Royce and Sandvik.
“The strength and breadth of Davide’s industrials expertise will serve us well in an incredibly active M&A market with no signs of a slowdown,” Pier Luigi Colizzi, Head of Investment Banking, Continental Europe, and Co-head of M&A EMEA said.
Davide’s appointment follows the hire of Anthony Samengo-Turner, as Head of M&A for Germany, Austria and Switzerland; Gauthier Le Milon as Head of M&A in France, Belgium and Luxembourg; as well as Pat Guerin’s appointment as Head of TMT M&A for EMEA.
Barclays Investment Bank has recently been in array of changing the leaderships in EMEA. Last month, it announced the appointment of Keith Robinson as Chairman of Technology Investment Banking for Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA) and a senior advisor within Group Strategy from where he will also provide advice to Barclays.
He will be responsible for enhancing the strategic focus of Barclays’ coverage for technology clients in EMEA and developing client relationships in this sector.
In July this year, it announced the appointment of Bronson Albery as Head of Real Estate Banking for Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA).
He joined Barclays from JP Morgan Cazenove, where he has spent 22 years, starting as an Associate in its M&A team before taking over the management of the UK real estate team in 2016.
