Deutsche Bank has announced that it will establish its next Technology Centre in Berlin, Germany. The centre will primarily support the ambitions of our Investment Bank and Corporate Bank through application development and the integration of new technologies. The Technology Centre will be led by Gerrit Einhoff, Chief Information Officer for the Corporate Bank and Investment Bank in Germany.
Berlin is a thriving location for technology and fintech companies, with a strong support network of academic institutions, large corporates, and innovative communities. It has the second biggest startup scene in Europe and benefits from a diverse talent pool. The city is a hub for Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning expertise, which represents a key opportunity for the bank to create significant value for its clients and further enhance the efficient running of its operations.
“Our Technology Centres play a key role in our technology transformation in close partnership with our businesses,” said Bernd Leukert, Chief Technology, Data and Innovation Officer. “Growing our presence in Berlin will attract talent, add high quality developers to our platform, and build up critical AI expertise to help redefine banking and contribute to our sustainable growth goals.”
Deutsche Bank’s Technology Centres deliver application development and support to the bank’s businesses and infrastructure functions and currently operate in the US, Europe and Asia.
