Deutsche Bank strengthens CEEMEA bond origination team

Deutsche Bank has expanded its bond origination capabilities in Central Europe, the Middle East and Africa (CEEMEA) with three senior appointments in DCM.

Maryam Khosrowshahi will join as a Managing Director and Head of Public Sector Coverage, CEEMEA, focusing on Sovereign borrowers and major state-owned corporations. Maryam joins the bank from Citigroup where over 20 years there her roles included Co Head of DCM, CEEMEA and most recently, Head of Financing and Liability Coverage, CEEMEA.  

Reid Payne will join as a Managing Director and will also oversee liability management for the CEEMEA region. Reid was most recently Head of CEEMEA Origination at RBS where he also established its restructuring and liability management operation.  

Anatoli Kossarik will join as a Director with responsibility for bond origination within Russia. Anatoli previously worked at Credit Suisse and most recently at RBS.

All three roles will be London-based and will report to Martin Hibbert, Head of DCM origination for CEEMEA.

Saleh Romeih, Head of CEEMEA and Co Head of Western Europe, DCM said: "Having someone of Maryam's experience and reputation on board will significantly enhance our capacity to provide best-in-class coverage of this vital sector of our business. The public sector in CEEMEA represents a growing set of financing and risk management needs, and Deutsche Bank’s leading franchise is wholly committed to serving these needs across the full spectrum of products."

Martin Hibbert added: “We are delighted to welcome Maryam, Reid and Anatoli to our CEEMEA DCM platform as we continue to expand our presence in this important and growing market. Their combined expertise will greatly benefit our clients as this market becomes increasingly sophisticated in terms of the level of client service required and the range of products offered.”
