Deutsche Bank hired a trio of senior dealmakers for its team advising technology, media and telecoms companies as the German lender continues to expand its investment bank in Europe.
The bank named Michael Longoni as vice chairman of TMT for Europe, the Middle East and Africa, based in London, according to an internal memo seen by Financial News. He has previously worked at Citigroup, where he was head of media investment banking for Emea.
Haziel Bamberger has also joined Deutsche Bank, from Rothschild, as a managing director covering technology companies in Emea. He will be based in Israel, which has many fast-growing technology and fintech companies. Christian Böhm has also joined Deutsche Bank, switching from JPMorgan in Frankfurt where he lead the US investment banks’ coverage of technology clients.
“These hires reflect our continuing investment in the TMT franchise globally and the rapidly growing commercial opportunity that technology and digitalisation represent for us as a bank,” said Gavin Deane, global head of TMT investment banking at Deutsche Bank.
Deutsche is reinvesting in its investment bank after a period of retraction since it unveiled a new strategy in 2019 retreating from non-core business lines and focusing on its strengths. The bank is set to take on Lewis Burnett, currently co-head of corporate broking at BNP Paribas, in a senior role FN reported.
Isabelle Aussourd, who led HSBC’s industrials advisory team in the Americas on an interim basis, has also joined the German lender as a managing director within its French origination and advisory business.
In August, Deutsche unveiled a series of changes to its upper ranks, with Henrik Johnsson, co-head of investment banking for Emea, taking on responsibility for industry coverage in the region, Berthold Fuerst becoming global head of M&A alongside Bruce Evans and Patrick Frowein promoted to chairman of investment banking coverage and advisory.
