Gordon Paterson, who ran Deutsche Bank AG (DBK)’s mergers advisory team in the Asia-Pacific region outside Japan, has left after more than five years with Europe’s biggest bank, two people familiar with the matter said.
Paterson left the Frankfurt-based bank recently, one of the people said, asking not to be identified because his departure hasn’t been announced. Deutsche Bank has yet to announce a replacement for the executive.
A spokeswoman for Deutsche Bank, who asked not to be identified, declined to comment. Paterson didn’t respond to calls to his mobile phone seeking comment.
Paterson, who has a master’s degree in business administration from the University of Western Ontario, joined Deutsche Bank in May 2007 from Citigroup Inc. (C:US), where he’d worked since 2002.
Deutsche Bank ranks 6th in advising on mergers and acquisitions in the Asia-Pacific region excluding Japan this year, up from No. 8 in the same period in 2011, according to data compiled by Bloomberg.
