Burton, pictured, spent four years at Evercore following 27 years in different roles at Lehman Brothers and Barclays Capital, including vice chairman.

Macquarie said he would be tasked with covering the banking sector within its financial institutions group.

Rob Redmond, executive chairman of Macquarie Capital in the Americas, said, “Mark brings an exceptional level of knowledge and client commitment to Macquarie.

“Mark and I worked together for years at Lehman Brothers, and I regard him as one of the leading financial institution bankers on the Street, having advised on a number of the most significant acquisitions in the depository sector in his three decades of work in the industry.

“It’s great to have him on board at Macquarie.”

In July Utah-based private equity firm Peterson Partners poached Macquarie Capital vice president Nick Jean-Baptiste, who now serves as vice president of its investment team.

Jean-Baptiste is responsible for identifying investments and working with portfolio company executive to accelerate growth in the newly-created position.
