The group of new hires included:

Sanjeev Khurana has more than 20 years of experience in private capital raising, institutional sales, origination, structuring and investments to Oppenheimer. His established relationships with a number of important partners, including lenders and issuers, will help elevate the Firm’s presence in the space.
The new hires will report to John Tonelli, head of DCM and syndication, and will work under the direction of Peter Albano, global head of taxable fixed income, in marketing and distribution of debt investments to Oppenheimer’s institutional fixed income clients.
