Meet Morgan Stanley's new class of distinguished engineers
Morgan Stanley’s distinguished engineers – the bank’s premier developers, architects, and technologists in general – have had a considerable addition to their ranks.
The bank has just appointed 26 new distinguished engineers globally, 16 of whom are based in North America. It now has around 60 in total.
Morgan Stanley awards the distinguished engineer title in recognition for the “influencers with superior technical expertise and mentors to the next generation.”
Similar schemes exist at Goldman Sachs, who calls them “technology fellows” and at myriad other banks, who usually use the “distinguished engineer” title (like at Morgan Stanley, Citi, and JPMorgan).
This year's class at Morgan Stanley is listed below. It includes Guus Bosman (who works on the E*Trade platform), Robert Bruno (who worked in Morgan Stanley's Hunt & Knight group, financial advisors under the firm's umbrella), Ryan Campagna, Peter Fraenkel, Shailesh Gavankar (Head of advanced analytics and machine learning), Howard Goldberg. Michael Gorbovitski (software generalist), Allison Nachtigal, Ray Hiltbrand (who worked on the E*Trade platform), Brian Ingenito, Christine Tu, and Amol Shukla in North America. David Hanson and Matthew Bain (Head of Cloud for Bank Resource Management Technology) were promoted in London.
The distinguished engineers of this cohort have a wide variety of seniorities and specialisations. Morgan Stanley “lifer” Allison Nachtigal boasts nearly 33 years at the firm, and is Head of Cloud Centre of Excellence - whilst Christine Tu joined from Merrill Lynch in 2019.
Both women are MDs at the firm, although most of the promoted cohort are EDs. The new class is drawn from across the firm, with the new distinguished engineers coming from enterprise technology & software (ETS), wealth management technology (WMT), and institutional securities technology (IST).
