Josef Ackermann, Chairman of the Management Board and the Group Executive Committee at Deutsche Bank, said: “Thomas Mayer is a highly respected economist and has been a trusted advisor to me during the financial and economic crisis, for which I am greatly indebted to him. I am very pleased that he will continue to serve the Bank and its clients in an advisory role.”
Thomas Mayer, Chief Economist of Deutsche Bank Group and Head of DB Research, said: “Deutsche Bank has a long tradition of exchange between research and academia. I am delighted to have the opportunity to pursue independent research alongside my work with Deutsche Bank’s senior management.”
As announced on March 16, David Folkerts-Landau, Head of Markets Research at Deutsche Bank, will become Head of Research effective on June 1 and will assume Mayer’s duties as Chief Economist of Deutsche Bank Group and Head of DB Research.
David Folkerts-Landau said: “Thomas and I have worked together for over two decades at Deutsche Bank and the International Monetary Fund. I look forward to benefiting from his advice as we further strengthen the macroeconomic analysis which has been successfully provided by DB Research out of Frankfurt for many years.”
