Deutsche Bank MDs: 10 names worth knowing
Deutsche Bank has promoted its latest round of managing directors.
The German bank doesn't release a full MD list, but we've selected some of the most interesting names that we've spied ourselves in the public domain. The promotions come at a time when Deutsche Bank is widely deemed to be back after its aggressive restructuring of 2019, but no bank is immune to a little title inflation - particularly in a year when bonuses have been squeezed.
Here are 10 names to watch for. Notably, some are comparatively new juniors. Others have been toiling at Deutsche Bank for a long while.
