Deutsche Bank has named David Lynne as head of global transaction banking in Asia Pacific.

He replaces Lisa Robins, who left the role at the end of 2017, subsequently becoming global head of transaction banking at Standard Chartered in January 2018.

Lynne takes on the new role in addition to his current position as head of fixed income and currencies for Asia Pacific. He reports to John Gibbons, head of global transaction banking and continues to be based in Singapore.

Robins had held the role from 2011. In the interim, Gibbons and James McMurdo, head of corporate and investment banking (CIB), Asia Pacific, had been co-heading the business.

“Under David’s regional leadership, we will continue to drive an integrated client proposition, leveraging the bank’s treasury and flow strengths across CIB,” says Gibbons, praising Lynne’s “strong leadership record and in-depth knowledge of the region”.

Lynne joined Deutsche Bank in 1995 and has held several senior positions across the corporate and investment segments of the bank. Over the past decade he led the bank’s Asia rates business, rates and commodities, as well as the Asia Pacific rates and foreign exchange business, before becoming head of fixed income and currencies for the region.
