Morgan Stanley names Colocci head of European M&A

* Colocci replaces Turowski, who moves to natural resources

* Matlock returns from Asia as chairman, international M&A

LONDON, May 5 (BestGrowthStock) – Morgan Stanley (MS.N: ) (Read more about the money market today. ) has
reshuffled its European mergers and acquisitions (M&A) team,
bringing in two senior bankers from outside the region and
moving M&A head Dieter Turowski to a top natural resources role.

Michele Colocci, formerly deputy head of European investment
banking and chairman of European M&A, becomes head of M&A for
the region, a Morgan Stanley spokesman said on Wednesday.

Turowski, who was named M&A head in February 2009, becomes
global co-head of natural resources, where he will advise oil
and gas, metals and mining, and power and utilities companies.

Scott Matlock, who spent two years in Hong Kong as Asian M&A
chairman, will become chairman of international M&A, a
London-based role overseeing dealmaking outside the Americas.

Charlie Stewart, head of Latin American investment banking,
takes over from Colocci as deputy head of European investment
banking, a rotating role that bankers traditionally hold for
about two years.

Energy and power is this year’s busiest sector for
dealmaking, according to Thomson Reuters data, with more than
$150 billion of deals, making up 23 percent of all global M&A.

Morgan Stanley was last year’s busiest adviser on announced
M&A deals involving European targets, according to Thomson
Reuters data. It ranks fifth for the year to date.

Colocci advised Belgian chemicals company Solvay (SOLB.BR: )
on the 4.5 billion euro ($6 billion) sale of its drugs unit to
U.S. drugmaker Abbott Laboratories (ABT.N: ), agreed in September.
