Deutsche Bank has strengthened its commodity trade finance business. This step enables Deutsche Bank to centralise all their commodity trade finance offerings to their commodity corporate clients in one team.

Effective immediately, Deutsche Bank's Commodity Trade Finance team EMEA, led by Willem Calame, will report to John MacNamara, Deutsche Bank's global head of Structured Commodity Trade Finance.

John MacNamara set up Structured Commodity Trade Finance in 1999 and has built it into a market leading global team to deliver syndicated trade-related lending to commodity corporates.

Willlem has been working in Deutsche Bank’s commodity finance business for the past 15 years in various roles.
