Nancy Bush, who was dismissed earlier this month as an analyst at Prudential Securities, will rejoin Ryan Beck & Co. in Livingston, N.J., as a managing director.

Ms. Bush will start her job as Ryan Beck's chief bank stock analyst Feb. 26. In an interview late Tuesday, she said she is returning to Ryan Beck, which she left in late 1999, "because I have come to appreciate the value of a short commute, direct contact with my clients, and working for a company I can trust."

Michael Mayo and a team of analysts who were fired in October when their firm, Credit Suisse First Boston, acquired Donaldson, Lufkin & Jenrette, succeeded Ms. Bush at Prudential.
