Sept. 10 (Bloomberg) -- Moelis & Co., the investment bank that went public this year, hired Jan Caspar Hoffmann of Societe Generale SA as the head of mergers and acquisitions for German- speaking countries.

Hoffmann, a managing director, will join the Frankfurt office in February, Moelis said in an e-mailed statement today. He will work alongside Herbert Henzler, a senior adviser, the New York-based bank said.

Hoffmann, who has worked in investment banking for more than 15 years, joins Moelis from Societe Generale, where he was head of M&A for German-speaking countries. Before that, he worked at Merrill Lynch. Moelis, founded by Wall Street veteran Ken Moelis in 2007, has been expanding since its initial public offering in April.
