Hambrecht & Quist has named vice chairman Paul L. "Barney" Hallingby interim director of research. Mr. Hallingby succeeds Bruce M. Lupatkin, who recently left the firm.

Mr. Hallingby will be interim director until a permanent director is appointed, which is expected to occur within six months, according to a statement by the San Francisco securities firm.

He joined Hambrecht & Quist in 1983 and has filled many senior posts since then, including director of research from 1988 to 1992.
