Deutsche Bank has named Kaushik Shaparia as its chief country officer for India, effective May 2019.

He replaces Khurshed Dordi, who has held the role in an interim capacity since January 2018.

Shaparia has been with Deutsche for 34 years, during which time he has held a number of roles. Most recently, he served as APAC head of corporate banking coverage within institutional and treasury coverage, as well as global head of subsidiary coverage.

Speaking about Shaparia’s appointment, Deutsche’s APAC CEO, Werner Steinmueller, says in a statement: “Kaushik has been with Deutsche Bank for over 30 years, and brings tremendous industry and institutional knowledge to the role. He also has contributed significantly to the building of our GTB business in India, and his global and regional experience will help bring our broad and successful India platform to even greater heights.

The bank says that it will announce successors for Shaparia’s current roles in due course.
