Barclays announces the appointment of Connie Chiang as a Managing Director in Biotech Investment Banking. Ms. Chiang will be based in New York, and will report to Rick Landgarten, Global Head of Healthcare & Real Estate Groups at Barclays.
Ms. Chiang rejoins Barclays from Credit Suisse, where she was a Managing Director and Head of Small/Mid-Cap Biotechnology within Healthcare Investment Banking.

“We are delighted to welcome Connie back to Barclays and to our Healthcare team. Her deep industry relationships, together with her extensive transactional experience and capabilities, will generate tremendous value for our clients,” said Rick Landgarten, Global Head of Healthcare & Real Estate Groups at Barclays. “Connie’s appointment is further evidence of our significant investment of resources in our life sciences franchise, and our firm commitment to building a market leading business.”
