Numis has hired a senior dealmaker to bolster its investment bank in London, around a decade after she left the industry.

The investment bank, which has traditionally focused on the City of London, has hired Melanie Saluja as a managing director within its dealmaking team.

Having previously held senior roles at Deutsche Bank and UBS, Saluja rejoins the banking sector after taking time out from the industry in 2012.

Saluja spent nearly 15 years at Deutsche Bank, latterly as head of equity corporate finance for Europe, the Middle East and Africa.

Meanwhile, Numis has also promoted Stephanie Johnston to general counsel. She was most recently head of investment banking legal and her new role will see her join the bank’s board.

Numis was historically known as a City broker, working with UK Plc primarily on initial public offerings and other fundraising work. However, in recent years it has expanded its range of investment banking services and also worked on more international deals. It opened its post-Brexit hub in Dublin in September and is building out the team.

In a September trading update, Numis said it expected full-year revenue to be £144m, a decline of 33% compared to a year earlier.
