Deutsche Bank hires Bruce Evans from Goldman Sachs

April 2007

Deutsche Bank has hired veteran investment banker Bruce Evans from Goldman Sachs to act as managing director in its mergers and acquisitions unit.

Mr Evans had worked for Goldman for 18 years, most recently as a managing director in the consumer retail investment group, and his hire is regarded as something of a coup for the US bank.

During his time there he was involved in the some huge company sales; among them brands affiliated to Proctor & Gamble and vitamin retail giant GNC.

News of Mr Evans hire comes amid a flurry of hires for the German bank, including Jane DeFlorio from UBS and Marco Habert from Citigroup, who will be installed in the consumer investment banking unit as managing directors.

Mr Hebert and Ms DeFlorio left positions as managing director in the consumer investment banking group with a remit for household and personal care coverage and director of consumer retail group for the company's medium-sized and large clients respectively.

Deutsche Bank occupies eighth position among investment banks in the global merger advice sector, with Morgan Stanley and Goldman ensconced in the top two places.
