For the last 14.5 months, there's been an eery sense that something has been missing on Wall Street. Maybe you couldn't quite place it, but you knew something was not right. Where there should have been a presence, a force of some kind, there was just...nothing. Where there should've been a healthcare banker (allegedly!) holding 'offsite 'shrooms days? Nothing. Where there should've been that same healthcare banker (allegedly!) viewing beds and toilets as interchangeable? Nothing. Where there should've been that very same healthcare banker (allegedly!) closing a deal by banging a client's girlfriend while said client did that healthcare banker's wife in the same room? Nothing.
But now? At long last? He's back, baby! Oh, and his new employer just wants to note that some people think his ex-wife is a vindictive has-been.
Sage Kelly is making a big comeback to Wall Street. The former Jefferies & Co. exec — who left the firm after estranged wife Christina Di Mauro filed court papers during their divorce outing her hubby and his banker buddies as alleged drug-taking party animals — has landed a senior investment banking job at Cantor Fitzgerald. Kelly signed with Cantor Fitzgerald chairman and CEO Howard Lutnick and will start this week as senior managing director and head of its investment banking division, Page Six can exclusively reveal. One Wall Street insider said, “It appears that Sage Kelly’s talent and ability to make money is more important than any attention his hiring could bring. Plus, many feel he was unfairly taken down by his vengeful ex-wife, and deserves to get back to work after laying low for a year.”
