Citi has created a team of bankers to tackle the clean energy ‘megatrend’. The US bank has named Steve Trauber and Sandip Sen as co-heads of a new unit within its corporate and investment bank, bringing together three industry groups to help clients move into alternative and clean energy sources.
Deutsche Bank has named Fabrizio Campelli to lead its investment bank, as the German lender’s chief executive, Christian Sewing, steps back from managing the unit. As part of the changes, Sewing will now take on responsibility for human resources, with Michael Ilgner, global head of HR, reporting into him.
Campelli, who has most recently served as its chief transformation officer, will take responsibility for Deutsche’s corporate and investment bank, the bank said in a statement.
The move is part of a series of changes at the bank, which include handing Sewing a renewed contract to keep him at the helm until 2026, in what it described as a “clear signal of continuity”.

KPMG said in a 31 March statement that Holt had been selected as the board’s nominee for the chief executive role with partners now set to vote on whether to approve the appointment on or before 14 April.
