Ed Peter's equity salesforce has been further burnished by a fifth new hire in as many days.

Having hired Gordon Crosby-Walsh (from Salomon), Elaine Yu (from Goldman), Rupert Adams (from Credit Agricole Indosuez), and Wong Chok Kin (from Merrill), the dynamic Peter takes his tally of new hires to 77 since he arrived last year.

The latest hire is Raymond Tam from Lehman Brothers in New York, who joins as a general Asian sales specialist based in the US.

Roll on the Month of the Blue Cow.
