Deutsche Bank adds Senator Chuck Hagel to Americas Advisory Board

Deutsche Bank today announced that former Senator Chuck Hagel has joined its Americas Advisory Board (AAB). Hagel served two terms in the United States Senate, from 1997 to 2009, representing the state of Nebraska and currently is a Distinguished Professor at Georgetown University and the University of Nebraska at Omaha.

Hagel’s appointment, announced at a meeting of the Board today in New York, comes after four other recent additions to Deutsche Bank’s Americas Advisory Board and Latin American Advisory Board (LAAB) last fall, when John E. Bryson, William R. Howell and Ellen R. Marram joined the AAB, and Armando Garza Sada joined the LAAB. George J. Mitchell stepped down from the AAB earlier this year after being appointed special envoy to the Middle East by President Obama.

“We are extremely proud to add yet another member to the Board with strong business experience and a distinguished record of service to his country,” said Seth Waugh, CEO of Deutsche Bank Americas and a member of the Group Executive Committee. “The collective knowledge and experience assembled on these boards has been exceptionally beneficial for Deutsche Bank and its clients, and we look forward to Chuck’s participation going forward.”

Hagel was a senior member of the Senate Foreign Relations; Banking, Housing and Urban Affairs; and Intelligence Committees.  He was the Chairman of the Foreign Relations’ International Economic Policy, Export and Trade Promotion Subcommittee.  He also chaired the Banking Committee’s International Trade and Finance and Securities Subcommittees.  Hagel also served as the Chairman of the Congressional-Executive Commission on China and the Senate Climate Change Observer Group.

The AAB was created to advise and consult with Deutsche Bank executives and clients on a wide range of strategic and market issues, including business development and growth as well as economic, industry, political and social trends. Board members also advise on client initiatives. Deutsche Bank’s Americas Advisory Board is comprised of 16 prominent executives and government figures from an array of industries and backgrounds. In addition to Hagel, other members are Norm Augustine, John E. Bryson, Michael D. Capellas, Anthony W. Deering, Archie W. Dunham, Benjamin H. Griswold, IV, William R. Howell, Robert L. Johnson, Edward A. Kangas, Ellen R. Marram, Lynn M. Martin, Robert P. May, Michael E. J. Phelps and John W. Snow, as well as emeritus member James Ireland Cash, Jr.
