UniCredit Appoints Jana Hecker as Global Head of Equity Capital Markets


UniCredit has appointed Jana Hecker as Global Head of Equity Capital Markets, effective from March 2020.

Ms. Hecker is based in Munich and reports to Luca Falco, Head of Global Syndicate & Capital Markets – she takes over from Stefania Godoli who was named Head of UniCredit’s CIB-CCB Italy Joint Venture in February.

In her new role, Ms. Hecker is responsible for global equity capital markets origination and execution activities, as well as the bank’s strategic partnership with Kepler-Cheuvreux around research and distribution services.

Ms. Hecker started her career at J.P. Morgan in New York in cross asset class structuring before joining Goldman Sachs in 2010, where she was responsible for providing equity capital markets access and strategic equity solutions to Western European clients. Most recently, she co-headed Deutsche Bank’s equity cash and strategic derivatives business for the DACH region.

Alongside the appointment of Ms. Hecker, UniCredit also outlined the following internal managerial changes to its ECM platform

  • Matthias Janssen appointed Head of Equity-Linked Products;
  • Alexander Vart appointed Head of ECM Germany & Austria;
  • Paolo Garzarelli appointed Head of ECM Italy;
  • Luca Domina, formerly Co-Head of ECM Italy, to take up a new role within UniCredit’s Industry Team as a Sector Specialist for Consumer Goods.

Each of the appointments listed above is effective immediately.

Commenting on the moves, Richard Burton, UniCredit’s Head of Corporate & Investment Banking, said: “Jana’s appointment and the broader changes announced today will further strengthen our equity capital markets platform as we continue to fine-tune our offering and deliver best in class solutions to our extensive client franchise.”
