The latest move is the second in as many months, after Sucden Financial also brought in Michael Donovan as its Senior Cocoa Broker in late June, whose mandate saw the ongoing development of the group’s cocoa business in London. Mr. Donovan joined Sucden Financial from Jefferies Bache, having served as its Senior Cocoa Trader and Vice President for a number of years.
