Institutional Investor-Ranked Michael Linenberg to Lead Airline Coverage in the Americas

Deutsche Bank Securities Inc. today announced that Michael Linenberg has joined as a Managing Director and senior company research analyst within its Global Markets division.  Based in New York, Linenberg will oversee airline and aircraft leasing research in the US and report to Steve Pollard, Managing Director and Head of Research in the Americas.
