Deutsche Bank announced that Werner Steinmueller, 62, Head of Global Transaction Banking (GTB), has been designated to join the Management Board and take on a new role as Chief Executive Officer of Asia Pacific. The Nomination Committee of the Supervisory Board will recommend these changes to the full Supervisory Board at its upcoming meeting on July 28. The appointment is also subject to regulatory approval.

Mr. Steinmueller joined Deutsche Bank in 1991 and has been the Head of GTB since 2004.

Deutsche Bank's GTB business is a leader in cash management, trade finance and securities services. The business is the world's largest clearer of euros and a leading provider of export letters of credit in Germany and trustee for securities in the United States.

Mr. Steinmueller is designated to relocate to Hong Kong in the autumn and become the first-ever Management Board member to be located in this fast-growing region. Deutsche Bank is present in 16 countries in Asia Pacific and has approximately 20,000 employees in the region. It is intended that Mr. Steinmueller remains Chairman of the Postbank Supervisory Board.

Mr. Steinmueller will be succeeded as Head of GTB by John Gibbons, 56. Mr. Gibbons has most recently been Regional Executive for Europe, Middle East and Africa and Global Head of Banks and Broker Dealers for Treasury Services at J.P. Morgan.

Mr. Gibbons previously worked at Deutsche Bank and Bankers Trust from 1992 to 2001. He has worked in banking for 34 years, serving as a leader of transaction banking businesses.
