Deutsche Bank today announced that Barry Massaro has joined as a Managing Director and Director of Finance for the US Broker-Dealer of Deutsche Bank AG, reporting to Eric Smith, Chief Financial Officer of the Americas.

In addition, the Bank has appointed Mary Chen-Eng to the role of Chief Operating Officer for Regulatory Initiatives within Finance, where she will focus on establishing an Intermediate Holding Company (IHC) under the Enhanced Prudential Standards set forth by the Federal Reserve Board. Chen-Eng will continue to report to Smith.

Massaro joins from HSBC where he spent the past 13 years, most recently as head of regulatory reporting for HSBC North America and chief financial officer of HSBC Securities USA.
