Deutsche Bank has appointed Konstantin Seryogin as the director and head of Deutsche’s representative office and local head of global transaction banking (GTB) in the Ukraine.

In his two new roles, Seryogin will be based in Kiev and report to Peter Tils, chief executive officer for Central and Eastern Europe, in his function as head of the representative office.

As local head of GTB for Ukraine, Konstantin will report to Daniel Falque, head of global transaction banking Europe, and as local head of TFCMC to Stefan Walter, head of cash management corporates and trade finance sales, as well as GTB relationship management, for Eastern Europe.

Before joining Deutsche, he held a number of positions within Citigroup’s corporate and investment banking division, including relationship management positions with Ukrainian banks and non-bank financial institutions. He also worked in the bank’s global transaction services unit, where he was responsible for cash management, trade finance and public sector business.

Before Citi, he also worked for First Ukrainian International Bank as well as Credit Suisse First Boston.

“Konstantin has considerable knowledge of the Ukrainian financial market which will be a valuable asset in establishing and further developing our transaction banking services in this strategically important market in Eastern Europe,” comments Werner Steinmueller, head of global transaction banking at Deutsche.
