July 18 (Bloomberg) -- Jefferies LLC, the investment bank owned by Leucadia National Corp., hired BNP Paribas SA’s Jon Bass for a senior role in fixed-income sales, according to two people with knowledge of the matter.

Bass left BNP Paribas’s New York office, where he was deputy head of fixed income, Cesaltine Gregorio, a spokeswoman for the Paris-based lender, said in an e-mail. Bass didn’t immediately respond to an e-mail and call to his mobile phone.

Richard Khaleel, a Jefferies spokesman, said he couldn’t comment on the move.
